Would you like to improve your mental math skills? Would you like to learn how to solve difficult math problems with ease and impress yourself and your friends with your math skills? With this app you will not only train your brain by solving math problems, you will also learn special mental math tricks.

For many math problems, special tricks exist that make solving these much easier. It is important to know when to use which trick, but also how to solve a math problem if none of these special tricks can be used.

This app contains 44 lessons (with up to 3 tricks per lesson) where you will learn tips and tricks for the following types of math problems:

-Addition

-Subtraction

-Multiplication

-Division

-Divisibility

-Remainders

-Squaring

-Square and cube roots

-Calculate the weekday for any date

You will not only learn the special tricks, but also more general solutions.

In the second part of this app, the training, you can solve random math problems with increasing difficulty (adaptive training). Or you can select what type of math problem you want to practice, and in which range the numbers should be (training with choice). The goal here is not only to become better and faster at solving math problems, you will also learn to detect which trick would be the best for the current math problem. This is why there is a help button in the training-section. If you push this button, the application will search for the trick or tip that is possibly the easiest for solving the current math problem.

Additional features:

-Two languages: All texts are in english and german.

-User management: Multiple users can use the same device. The application saves the settings and position in the training for each user separately.

-Two different GUI-designs: Use a blue flickering background with white text in sci-fi movie style. Or switch to a simple white paper background with black text.
