Magical Maths is a 4 games in one application designed to enhance the learning outcomes of Key Stage 1 Primary School pupils (Years 1 and 2) as well as any children aged between 4 and 10 who are learning maths. The application comes with 3 levels of difficulty as well as allowing the user to select more challenging levels as their confidence grows. All the games in this application are based on the United Kingdom National Curriculum Mathematics Key Stage 1 syllabus in particular Numbers and the Number System (counting and the number system)and Calculations (number operations and mental methods). Magical Maths provides a great way to improve your child's early maths skills and can be used in conjunction with other approaches to learning. In addition to simple addition and subtraction, this application aims to develop your child's recall of multiplication tables, with a focus on understanding and application. Primary school children have a daily maths lesson, and Magical Maths uses the character of Bonzo the Wizard to show them how useful number skills are in almost everything they do. Using Magical Maths, your child can have hours of fun placing numbers in the correct order (understanding of the number system), helping Bonzo select the correct number of ingredients for a magical potion (applying multiplication), calculating how many leaves are left on Bonzo's pet Potion Plant called Percy (applying subtraction) and helping Bonzo escape from the dragons by answering simple arithmetical problems (applying mental methods). Magical Maths makes use of colourful and vibrant images in order to keep your child entertained as well as educating them. Magical Maths can be played anywhere and does not rely on a network connection or internet access in order to function - your child can be entertained and educated in the middle of nowhere!
