What sets Count on me! apart in the list of best maths apps for kids is the use of Game-Embedded Teaching. By merging learning outcomes with high-quality game design, Count on me! keeps children entertained as well as educated during their screen time.

You and your child may have downloaded a few maths apps or educational games before. What you may not know that many of the apps and games on the market lack a grounding in scientific evidence.

To do so, they designed the app using the latest research within learning psychology and the most effective learning method: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Children who practice maths using Count on me! improve their maths skills by 60%, compared to the children who did not use the app – and all it takes is 15–20 minutes of gameplay per day. Say goodbye to mind-numbing screen time and distractions. Instead, say hello to this new, entertaining way to learn mathematics.

What makes game-embedded teaching apps like Count on me! different to traditional mathematics apps is that they incorporate learning moments into a game, rather than adding elements of gamification into education. Many popular mathematics apps lack scientifically-proven (and rigorously tested) results. This means that there is no evidence to show long-term, statistically significant improvement in maths knowledge after using these apps.

On the other hand, the science behind Count on me! has been proven through the most academically-rigorous review process, giving parents and teachers the confidence that time their children and students spend playing Count on me! is time well spent.

Thanks to Game-Embedded Teaching, you can comfortably let your child play Count on me! in the knowledge that they are learning and mastering important early maths skills while doing so.
