Math + Play = Numerosity!
This is the best summary of this fantastic App. Numerosity is an educational game aimed at children aged 7-10. They’ll learn math, review concepts and improve their numerical skills.
With Numerosity, children will experiment with numbers and operations to develop their creativity with math. They’ll move numbers around, dragging them into different positions to perform different operations so as to discover the rules of math on their own at their own pace.
Skruff the dog will be their friend throughout the game and he will learn math along with the kids to become a ‘Matemagician’!
Numerosity starts with a FREE CHAPTER (Chapter 0) which includes a sample level of each chapter of the app to let parents test it.
Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and the order of operations are the 5 chapters covered by Numerosity. Kids will progress through these stages by ‘leveling up’ in the game. With over 100 levels, Numerosity will give hours and hours of fun and learning. They’ll also play against the clock to get better results, points and master each level as they go.
And, at the end of each chapter…SURPRISE! A fabulous certificate made by Skruff that children can send to their parents to print out and put on the wall.
And, if that’s not enough, we will inform parents* about their child’s progress throughout the game and we’ll also give them tips to reinforce the knowledge they’ve acquired so far.
*At the end of each chapter we ask the kid for a name and parent’s email address. We don’t collect more personal information. We don’t share email addresses with third-party companies and we don’t spam. We have got “Kids Safe Seal” and we meet the specifications of a safe App and safe website for them. We send emails with valuable information for children’s education.

Reviews of Numerosity:
‘The games are a brilliant way for students to learn and Numerosity has done a smashing job of coming up with an app that has the ability to put the child back in the driver’s seat’. – Teachers With Apps.
Great fun ★★★★★
Brilliant app, seems even better and smoother since the most recent update. Love it
Best Maths App I’ve seen so far… ★★★★
This is great, just downloaded it today and my eight-year-old daughter has been playing it for hours! It’s very hard to find good apps from the thousands/millions out there, but this impressed me enough to write a review! Great app, we love it! Hopefully they’ll add more and more levels as my daughter gets older, but there’s plenty here for the next year or two.
Numerosity is great! Thanks Skruff! ★★★★★
As a teacher and a mom, I think it is an effective tool and it’s fun at the same time for kids to enjoy while learning math. And also Skruff is so funny. They don’t mind playing in different language as well!

When I first played with a tablet device I realized how powerful it is to be able to touch and manipulate objects and numbers while observing the results of your action and learning from the immediate feedback. This is when I decided to start ThoughtBox, develop Numerosity and give kids the opportunity to discover the rules of maths by themselves rather than being spoon-fed the information.
