- Sums can be read out loud with a tap of the speaker button
- Help in each section is given with a tap of the help button
Eight Topic Areas to Learn:
- Learn the Numbers: learn the operator symbols and the numbers 1 to 30 with fruit to count
- Learn to Count: Random fruit are shown and the child counts and picks the right number
- Number Patterns: Children find the missing number in a sequence of 5 numbers
- Write the Numbers: Learn to correctly form the numbers 1 - 9 by tracing dotted number forms
- Addition: Learn to add two numbers together
- Subtraction: Children learn to take one number from another
- Multiplication: One number multiplied by another
- Division: One number divided by another
Four Levels to Progress Through:
- Beginner: Simple questions with answers up to 10 and illustrations to help young children
- Intermediate: Questions with answers up to 20
- Advanced: Questions with answers up to 30
- Genius: Algebra questions, the answer is given and the child finds the missing part of the question.
Foundation Maths supports the following Early Years learning goals:
- Counting and using numbers to at least 10 in familiar contexts
- Recognising numerals 1 to 9
- Beginning to understand addition as 'combining' two groups of objects
- Beginning to understand subtraction as 'taking away'
- Using early mathematical ideas to solve practical problems.
Foundation Maths also supports the following Key Stage 1 learning outcomes:
- Use the correct language, symbols and vocabulary associated with number and data
- Count reliably up to 20 objects at first and recognise, be familiar with the numbers 11 to 20; gradually extend counting.
- Create and describe number patterns; explore and record patterns related to addition and subtraction, and then patterns of multiples of 2, 5 and 10 explaining the patterns and using them to make predictions; recognise sequences, including odd and even numbers to 30 then beyond; recognise the relationship between halving and doubling.
- Use the symbol '=' to represent equality; solve simple missing number problems [for example, 2 + ? = 6 ]
