A pleasant-sounding teacher guides, encourages, and congratulates the children as they progress through the activities.

Kids Numbers and Math includes activities specifically designed to improve skills kids’ math skills. Sections include:
Children can learn their numbers from 1 to 20 by counting up, or down, using the app's large, kid-friendly back and forward buttons. Parents can choose to have the numbers spoken in one of eight languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese) and set the numbers to appear sequentially or randomly.
- Recognizing and Comparing Numbers
Two activities specifically encourage your child's number comparison and recognition skills: Find the Largest Number and Find the Smallest Number. With each game, a series of hot air balloons descend from the top of the screen and bob up and down. The narrator encourages the child to pick the balloon with the largest or the smallest number.
The constant motion and varying number of the balloons, from two to four, along with the large number range, from 1 to 99, promotes concentration and quick thinking.
- Finding a Match
Parents can encourage their child's memory skills with the Find a Match game. Based on the classic turn-over tile memory game format, children are prompted to find the matching numbers hiding beneath a field of cloud-shaped tiles. The number of clouds can be set in the context menu for this activity.
- Learning Addition and Subtraction
Two activities guide children through the basics of addition and subtraction using apples and pears, and a third, advanced exercise, combines the two.
Children are given a problem to solve, four answer choices, and visual clues to help them find the right answer.
The advanced exercise provides a series of combined addition and subtraction problems with numerals ranging from 1 to 99. The multiple choice format of the addition and subtraction games stays the same, but this activity eliminates visual references-- no orchard fruit to help your child figure out the right answer.
