Designed in France, this elegant early math app was originally published in 2012. The 2016 edition contains two additional number sandboxes that are ideal for letting a child freely tinker with early mathematical relationships.

1 to 20 (the first menu option) starts by offering a choice between three levels: 0 to 5, 0 to 10 and 11 to 20. You can then freely drag-and-drop blocks to build the numbers in order. When your set is complete, you are rewarded by a block building activity, where everything on the screen can be moved around or stacked.

Quantity is a base 10 activity ideal for showing you how numerals can be represented by beads, number bars, or number squares. If you like, you can hide the numerals to work specifically on the association of number names with quantities. You can also touch placed beads to hear them counted out loud. There are 3 levels of difficulty: 0 to 9, 10 to 99 and 100 to 999; or you can set your own number range.

100 Board lets you fill in a 100's grid, one numeral at a time. As you do the numerals are read out loud in a clear voice. If you're a teacher, you'll love this on the big screen, because you can toggle on/off hints or let children see how quickly they can illustrate patterns.

Numerals specifically asks you to find a spoken number on a number line. Each experiment is labeled in clear speech, and illustrated in real time, showing children the size of the numeral they have discovered.

Numerals (from quantity) associates a quantity with a given numeral. This time, you're asked to build the number that matches a quantity, displayed as blocks. For numerals greater than 10, this can be hard, because the child has to consider decimals.

Tracing Numerals lets you trace each numeral using a range of animated effects that make your finger feel powerful. There are sparkles, swirling stars and so on that are very responsive and fun to explore.

This app is loaded with ways to customize the experience, which makes it appealing to classroom teachers. It's now possible to set your own custom number range, between 1 and 999), and many of the activities include the ability to freely stack objects or scribble with fountains of stars. Other features include your choice of three English dialects (American English, British English and Australian English). You can also adjust the sounds, decide if the numeral 4 should have an open or closed top, and keep records for different children. Children are automatically assigned a profile, as User 1, User 2, etc.). It is rare to find an early math app that offers this type of number range and flexibility.
