How fast can you solve the sums? Math Martians is one of the most addictive subtraction teaching & learning iPhone apps available, helping children to learn, practise and master subtraction while having lots of fun. With 12 beautifully-illustrated & animated levels (including -1, -2, Halving, Halving -1, and Mystery Numbers) this is an app that can test, entertain and teach the whole family. It’s a great way to boost mental calculation skills.

***Available at our special introductory price!

We’ve turned learning subtraction into a fun Martian bubble-popping game. Plus, it’s all against the clock. Tap through each set of twelve sums correctly and you’ll get enough energy from the cheeky Martians to help Spaceman Sam fly his rocket back to earth. If you fail to do it in time, he’ll be stuck on the red planet until you succeed.

So, let our Math Martians app give your child a head-start on their road to Math success. Play with your child or play against them, however you play you’ll combine learning with fun. When it comes to taking the first fun steps towards successful numeracy/subtraction, we think it’s a hard app to beat.

It’s not just for kids! Test your children, learn with them, and most of all have fun, as you see how fast you can tap through the answers to the sums. Beat your own time, beat your friends’, and your family’s. Once you play, you’ll not want to stop.
