Solving problems and memorizing tables will not make kids better at mathematics, says an education expert. Among the subjects destined to learn, mathematics is one subject that students often find difficult to study. May be the difficulty is due to passive learning process.

Students learn math best only when they approach the subject as something they enjoy. Some students might take longer time in memorizing but they still possess extra ordinary potential in the subject. Trying out something new can transform the classroom. Traditional method of teaching has lost its charm. Technology is taking over the space.

Check out some of the cool apps that can make mathematics fun to learn:

  • Swim with Numbers

Swim with Numbers is one such app that uses the beautiful colour of ocean as its theme. Learning numbers is made fun by the app. This app consists of four sections.

In the last part, we discussed about our smart English language apps for preschoolers. It was a fun and colourful app aimed at improving your child’s overall language development. But, children need to learn not just about language, but also about numbers. Our smart Math/Numbers apps are ideal for the purpose.

Swim With Numbers

With its beautiful ocean theme, the ‘Swim with Numbers’ app is a great way to introduce your children to the world of numbers. The app covers numbers 1 to 10. There are four different sections in this app to improve your child’s overall numerical ability. The sections are:

  1. 123 – Teaches children to recognize the numbers 1 to 10
  2. 123 Trace – A tracing activity for children to get used to writing numbers in English
  3. 123 Game – It is a counting activity that reinforces learning
  4. 123 Song – Children tend to learn songs faster. The numbers song will help retain what they learn.

Time Bird

Time can be a confusing concept for young children. Preschoolers do understand tiny bits of the concept and the Time Bird app makes the best out of it.

Learn to Tell Time

Your children gets introduced to the clock, the features and purpose of clocks

Both analogue and digital clocks are introduced to children in this section

It explains the hour hand to your child.

There are two different modes – Auto learning and self learning. In auto learning, the minute hand stays at 12 so that your child understands that every time the minute hand stays there, the time is __ o’clock. Self Learning on the other hand allows your child to move the hands around till they learn how to read it.


This part contains a couple of age-appropriate activities that simplify the concept of time; making it easy for your children to understand.

These activities are:

  1. Matching – The child has to match digital and analogue clocks that show the same time
  2. Set Time – This activity asks the child to set time on the clock evaluates the child by asking him to set the time on the clock.

Math Tables

This is a game that will make little multiplication table champions out of your kids. There are two different modes in this game.

The first one is Random Mode, which lets your child practice tables using random questions. The kid should slice or squash the correct answers. There are 5 lives and each incorrect answer reduces a single life.

The second mode is Time Mode. It gives a time frame of 90 seconds within which your child has to answer maximum number of multiplication questions.

Results are displayed in a separate page and points out the tables on which the child has to work more. The app even lets you choose the table you like to practice.

All About Shapes

This is our upcoming application that provides more fun and learning to preschoolers.

That’s it for this week. Next time, we will look into the E.V.K / G.K. apps.

Last week, we had discussed about our Smart apps for toddlers – TinyTapps. If you missed it, you can read it here. Today, we are going to explain about our English language apps. We have four colourful and fun apps for teaching English. Let’s take a look at them.

Fun with ABC – Alphabet Learning

This lovely app introduces your kid to the world of English alphabets. It has a colourful interface with jungle theme that children would easily relate to. There are four sections in this app –alphabet recognition (ABC), alphabet tracing (ABC Trace), alphabet activity (ABC Game) and song (ABC Song). These sections together provide a comprehensive learning that children will enjoy. The app is simple to use for both child and parent/teacher.

Small abc

Your child will have fun learning small letters of the English language with this smart app. This app aims to develop and strengthen both visual and auditory associations with alphabets. It also has an activities section that has been designed to build your child’s analytical thinking and recognition skills. This app has a read and writes section that, as the name suggests, is aimed at improving basic reading and writing skills of pre-schoolers. Children become familiar with the letters and their sounds. Apart from that, kids are encouraged to trace or write the alphabets, which have the additional benefit of improving their motor skills.

There is an Activities section too, for evaluating how much the child has learnt and retains in his mind. It incorporates a drag and drop activity that strengthens picture-letter association. Other sections include Blast the Rocket for recognising lower case alphabets through auditory association, Matching Activity that emphasizes on visual association and recognition and Rhythm & Rhyme, which hugely improves your child’s speech, literacy, reasoning, physical, emotional, and social development.


As the name implies, this app encourages children to learn word pairs with opposite meanings such as “hot and cold”, “up and down” and “good and bad”. Children show a tendency to learn certain types of words easily. Opposites are one such concept they grasp quickly. They help children to differentiate and distinguish the world around them. This app includes about 50 opposite words and a game. Opposites challenge and fine tune the cognitive skills of your children.

Rippling Rhymes

Songs are one of the easiest ways for children to learn because they love the rhythm and rhyme. Rippling Rhymes is an app that includes a collection of short and rhythmic songs that make it easy for your children to learn and memorize. Each song is unique and has a special theme. But all of these songs are like stories with a beginning and an end. They are entertaining and add value by incorporating new vocabulary, concepts of alphabets, numbers etc. There are beautiful illustrations, animations, an intuitive user interface and excellent audio quality.

These are the apps that TinyTapps have developed to help pre-schoolers learn more about English Language. Next week, we will explain about the Math/Numbers apps by TinyTapps.
