I would also recommend DragonBox Numbers app. It’s a little pricey $7.99 but an excellent app especially for children in  K-2.    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dragonbox-numbers/id1005050125?mt=8

New brain research on visual math

Jo Boaler recently released a new paper she has written with a Stanford neuroscientist, that “could – and should – transform maths classrooms and homes.”

I am a huge fan of her work and  completed some of the courses offered on her website to help my daughter in math.
