There are three different game modes. The first involves counting out money using single coin denominations. The second mode is similar but uses mixed coinage. In the third game mode children are required to work out change from differing amounts up to £10.00. Each mode has varying levels of difficulty so that children can build upon their money handling skills.

At the moment the game features UK currency but it will soon be available in both AUD and USD currencies.

New Number Fact Families Maths Game

We’ve been busy making more maths games this summer and our latest Number Fact Families, is aimed at 6 to 11 year olds. Like all Topmarks’ games it is tablet friendly and it works brilliantly on an interactive whiteboard in full-screen mode.

It can be used as a teaching tool and as an individual game for children to learn the fact family relationships between addition and subtraction or multiplication and division. Three numbers are given and children are required to find all four number facts.

Addition and Subtraction: Up to 50

Multiplication and Division: 2 to 5 Tables

In both Addition and Subtraction and Multiplication and Division modes there are two alternative layouts, to meet National Curriculum requirements, involving the different position of the equals sign.
e.g. 1 + 3 = 4 or 4 = 1 + 3. The Addition and Subtraction mode the number selections may include zeros, again in line with curriculum requirements. All number selections are randomly generated so that the game can be replayed many times.

We would love to know what you think to the game if you have a couple of minutes to drop us a line. Try the game now.

New Subtraction Grids Maths Game

We’ve just launched a new tablet friendly mental maths game called Subtraction Grids which is ideal for 6 to 11 year olds. There are two playing modes where a player needs to choose either one or two missing numbers from the grid to complete the subtraction calculation. Each mode has six levels of difficulty and questions are randomised so the game can be replayed, making it great for mastery through practise and ideal for children preparing for SATs tests.

In the one number game mode the position of the missing number varies. In the two missing numbers game children are required to find two numbers given the difference between them.
