You don’t always have to be in a classroom – or even sitting still – to do arithmetic thanks to the new games app Manic Math. This device, which is compatible with all Apple products such as the iPhone and iPad, tests various formula such as multiplication, division and subtraction as well as the user’s memory, concentration and even competitiveness.
There’s graphs to record scores, aimed at highlighting areas which need further study. The app’s selling point is that it teaches maths on the move in the form of a game. It has been designed for primary school age children but its manufacturers recommend the device for anyone who is keen on keeping their brain in shape.
