 The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in USA has produced a number of really interesting apps, many of which are free. (These are all compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad ) Math Concentration Free Either on his or her own, or against a friend, children are asked to match whole numbers, shapes, fractions, or multiplication facts to equivalent representations. This app is really good fun. Deep Sea Duel Free Children are challenged to collect cards with a specified sum. The level of complexity can be changed and numbers can either be whole or decimals. Pick-a-Path Free This app asks children to find their way through a maze by completing puzzles which will test your understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, negative numbers, fractions, decimals and more. Suitable for children aged 8 and over. Equivalent Fractions Free This app allows children to make equivalent fractions by dividing and shading shapes, and matching to a number line. The instructions are quite complicated and it is fiddly to use and not very exciting.
