Top 10 Apps For World Maths Day


World Maths Day is a celebration of the importance of maths around the world ”” in fact, it’s so important that there are two World Maths Days each year. Not only is it a celebration of Maths, but it’s also a competition where pupils compete to solve complex and quick-fire maths problems. Although your children may not be quite old enough to compete in these competitions, we think it’s always a good idea to introduce them to numbers early so they can learn to have fun with Maths.

Here are our top 10 maths apps to get your little ones involved in numbers from an early age:
