What is it
Dino Kid Math is a maths app especially designed for children aged 4-8 years. They can practice addition, subtraction and multiplication in a simple, fun and interactive game. Children need to drag the number cards into the empty spaces in order to make the number sentence correct.
There are three levels (Easy, normal and hard); and once children have completed one level within an operation they automatically move onto the next one. As well as this there is also a function within the settings which enables you to change the numbers the children are working with.
The app contains a game log so that parents can see what their children have done and how well they have achieved.

What our experts think
This is a simple app which allows children to practise their mental maths skills in a fun way. Working things out in their heads is an important skill and children need to be encouraged to do this with increasing speed – this app allows them to do just that.
We like the way in which children are automatically progressed to the next level – this provides a good level of challenge and ensures that children don’t always just choose the easy route!
It would be even better if...
We didn’t really like the use of the word ‘Fail’ when the children got one of the answers wrong – just a cross would suffice! We also would like to have seen division as one of the operations.
We also would like to have seen no adverts and a parent gate preventing children from accessing the settings area.
