Numeracy basics is an app for the iPad.  All of the following resources are included in the single app.

It has been designed to make it easy for teachers, teaching assistants and parents to use traditional teaching methods using an iPad.  It has also been designed so that each resource in the app has a freely available identical version available online for use with an IWB.  This allows teachers to demonstrate concepts to the whole class using the IWB and then assist individuals using the app on an iPad without distracting the whole class.

An important point to realise with this app is that it is designed to support teaching.   It is not designed for children to go off and learn with it independently.  Neither does the app include any rigid direction of activities.  Teachers can use it to work through numeracy questions and model methods of answering the questions.  Children can then use it to work out answers using the app and the guidance of their  teacher.  This makes the app more flexible to each teacher’s needs as the app can be used to work with whatever work they find it suitable for.

  1. I do appreciate these resources, they do not spoon-feed and allow the teacher to make decisions regarding their use and pace. Thank you for these, this site is always my first port of call.
