Use your iPads to log in to your school account...

NumberGym's iPad apps for Bond Builder, Table Trainer and Mental Maths Challenge now support School Logins. We had some reports of poor performance accessing these products through the Puffin browser but the apps work perfectly.

We also provide 9 other iPad apps created from some of the challenges and games in The Number Gym. See our Apps page for more details.

Recent research...

... that suggests schools with lots of IT equipment perform no better than those without it may inadvertently be highlighting the fact that some of the most popular maths software products focus on entertainment rather than mathematics.

With NumberGym Maths you're doing maths 100% of the time AND it's fun. But, of course, teachers still need to teach maths - we think we offer the best maths teaching tools coupled with engaging and creative challenges and games.

BondBuilder & TableTrainer and Mental Maths Challenge are your strongest products used in the proper way - with home access.
I believe they can make a massive difference to maths teaching - if it's done properly and coordinated as a whole school with parental involvement.

- Fiona Reid, CarronGrange School, Falkirk


The Number Gym is completely different and I was aware while using it with my pupils that not only did it make them think about the concepts they were working on, but it also enhanced their understanding.

- Nicole Cooper, M.A M.Ed. Head of Learning Support, The Richard Pate School, Cheltenham


I work with learners ranging from age 11 to adult and NumberGym seems to be one of the best, and widely age appropriate tools out there.

- Pete Jarrett, Tutorum Learning & Assessment


After 15 minutes I knew that NumberGym Maths was on a par with any of the best mathematics software I have seen over the past decade.
It is difficult to pick holes in this well-designed and fully accessibly software. In the hands of a good teacher it will help inspire and motivate children in mathematics.
