Learn to read, write and understand numbers from zero to nine, through a series of interactive, guided and challenging activities.

Intro to Math was featured in the iPad 2 Commercial and Apple's Best Apps of the Year!

Based on the proven methodology of Montessori.



• The basic foundations of math
• To read, write and understand numbers from 0-9
• Number symbols and their units
• Sequence, order and spatial relationships
• An introduction to odds and evens
• Problem solving skills
• Fine motor skills



Intro to Math includes the following activities in a Universal app that will work on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch:


In this interactive exercise, your child will come to understand length, by arranging the rods from longest to shortest.

In a series of engaging activities, we introduce the idea of quantity, and demonstrate how it corresponds to numbers.

Through a number of guided tracing exercises, we concentrate on the symbols of the numbers, and how to write them.

Completing the cycle, from the symbols of the numbers back to their quantity, we focus on the sequence of each number.

In this dynamic activity, we work with odd and even numbers, strengthening our understanding of the sequence of numbers.


We would love to hear from you.

Love it.

I have been wondering how some of the montessori-type educational theory would play out on an ipad and now i totally get it! Soothing on the eyes and ears, these activities hit a different chord than a lot of the math apps for kids I have downloaded so far, filling a gap and rounding out my math app collection nicely. More about getting a feel for the concept of numbers instead of memorizing the algorithms and winning a game. Daughter sticks w it and enjoys the variety of activities, I am glad each activity has at least a couple of levels.

I really really hope to see more advanced concepts from this developer, would buy them in a heartbeat as daughter is ready for more of a challenge.

Hey, developers: one improvement: my daughter has played quite a bit, has mastered some of the easier steps in each level, and usually gets bored doing what she already knows, then quits before getting to the harder part. For example, number counters - she is totally ready for the odd even tracing, but gets sick of placing all of the counters for every number up til that part of the activity. Can you make it possible to jump to the section of the activity that you want to play with? She is sick of repeating the easy stuff, could do it in her sleep...

Quality source material + quality programming = great app

I'm a fan of Montessori style education primarily because of the responsibility it places on the child to learn simply by providing an interesting, educational environment. This app does just that. As a webpage designer/programer I was sold on the quality of the app, but to be able to hand my phone to my 3-yr old and have him on his own go through each exercise was just amazing. He was beaming and turning to look at me every once and a while to say "This is so fun, Daddy." As good as the these Montessori exercises are, this app could have easily been a failure (despite how pretty it is) if it didn't provide an intuitive way for children to explore each exercise on their own. Seeing the confidence in my son's face as he figures things out is just wonderful. It really looks great on my iPhone, but I would love to see it on an iPad. I could almost justify finally buying an iPad just for this app (and the Intro to Letters which is coming soon).

Fun 1-10 Math App

This app is great for teaching and reinforcing 1-10 number skills.
It uses several Montessori activities as its foundation for teaching and reinforcing 1-10 numerals and 1-10 quantities. It has 6 different choices of games. Some of the games have different levels of play to them. The voices are sweet and kind. The interface is child friendly. The app does not go off into all sorts of wild and crazy distracting noises and graphics, but is simple and to the point. It focuses on the objective of learning. The app does not make lots of distracting noises when the “wrong” answer is chosen, but merely asks again for the quantity. Yes, this app is $5 which seems high on the app store, but most people seem to want everything for free on the appstore. This app only works with 1-10. This app is designed for preschoolers just starting out with math. For these things it does a great job and is worth the price of a coffee or a movie to help your child learn
