Teacher Review

Hit the Button is an interactive maths game with quick fire questions on number bonds, times tables, doubling and halving, multiples, division facts and square numbers. The games which are against the clock challenge and develop a child's mental maths skills.

This quick-fire game from Top Marks can be played using times tables up to 10 or 12, focusing on one particular times table or using a mix of sums from all of them. Race against the clock to answer as many questions correctly as possible and reinforce your multiplication learning. You can choose to be given sums to select the correct answer, or be given an answer to which you need to find the right sum. Once the same question has come up a few times you’ll notice how quickly you’ve internalised the answer.

Developer Description

Hit the Button Maths is an app designed to help develop mental maths and calculation skills.

The app is aimed at 5-11 year olds, has 97 different game modes of varying difficulty so it is useful throughout the primary school age range. You play minute-long games where you answer as many questions as possible. Questions are randomly generated which means it is very replayable. The game has been carefully designed for children, with large, widely spaced buttons. We recommend that young children play on an iPad.

Six main topics are covered:

  • Times tables
  • Division
  • Square numbers
  • Number bonds
  • Doubling
  • Halving

Between these topics, the four standard arithmetic operations are covered: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

You can create up to 15 player profiles per device to track an individual's high scores. If you prefer there's also the option to play as a guest. All data is stored locally on your device so you don't have to worry about privacy issues. We've also made it very easy for children to quickly switch between profiles after playing a game, if they're sharing a device.

After each game, the score achieved is displayed along with the child's high score. Bronze, silver or gold stars and trophies are awarded depending on the score achieved in each game.
