Balancing Sums Balancing Sums

An excellent tool for reinforcing an understanding of the role of the equals sign. Choose one objective, or many. You can choose all the objectives for a single year group (or multiple year groups). You can also choose to balance between different types of calculations (eg addition and multiplication).

Bubble Pop - Number Bonds Bubble Pop - Number Bonds

A great way to practise number bonds and mental addition. Levels include: number bonds to 10, 20, 50 and 100 as well as addition pairs with a total of up to 20, 50 or 100. Look at the target at the top of the screen and then aim your bubble to make that target.

As a teacher I know how important it is that children know their number bonds (pairs of numbers that add up to 10, 20, 50 or 100), and can add quickly mentally. Repetition is essential in learning number bonds. This game is designed to make the process fun.

Children have to aim their bubble to make a given sum. As they progress the levels get harder; they have less time, or less bubbles to shoot. Each correct answer is accompanied by an image to reinforce the number bond they have found.

This game is available on iPad, iPod and iPhone, as well as on android phones and tablets.
