Two New Maths Games Launched

This week we’ve added two new tablet friendly maths games:
Coconut Odd or Even and Coconut Multiples. They are similar games but they cover different mathematical concepts.

In Coconut Odd or Even children need to identify either odd or even numbers by hitting the relevant coconuts.

Coconut Multiples requires children to identify multiples in either individual times tables or mixed tables. Users can select whether to work with tables up to 10 or 12.

Brand New Mental Maths Game – Helicopter Rescue

We are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new maths game, Helicopter Rescue, which is based on number charts and is designed to help children get to grips with two-digit numbers. It’s suitable for 5 to 8 year olds and it can help children find their way around number charts. It also reinforces the vocabulary of addition and subtraction such as more than, less than, count on and count back.
