K-5 Math Apps

A list of my favorite math apps for preschool through fifth grade elementary students

Rocket Math - Basic Math Facts Fun Learning Game for elementary kids grades kindergarten to 5th

Now track students progress reports within the app!

This is Dr. Don Crawford's original Rocket Math—put into an app after 15 years as a paper and pencil math facts program in classrooms around the country. Not just another math facts game, this classroom-tested math facts practice and learning program is scientifically designed to be effective in developing math facts fluency.

Learning objective for Rocket Math: After completing the Rocket Math program in addition the student will be able to quickly answer any addition fact up to 9 + 9 without hesitation or having to stop and think about it. Being able to automatically answer facts without thinking is an important skill needed for success in higher level math. The same learning objective is accomplished by doing the Rocket Math program in the other operations of subtraction, multiplication and division.


Same game play as Mathtopia+ with the early levels of addition free. Smart Apps for Kids says of Mathtopia+: "...the first app I've reviewed that has been so addicting to me I couldn't stop playing long enough to write the review. It's also being played by all three of my children, in 6th grade, 3rd grade, and kindergarten, and I've even heard them fighting over the iPad for more Mathtopia+ time. I can guarantee no one in my house has ever fought over more time with flash cards."

"Wickedly addictive!" Math Coach's Corner.

"I found our 10-year-old 'sneaking' time on the iPad and playing it for fun." Apps for Homeschooling.
