Latest Numeracy Apps for Pupils with SEN

Below are some of the excellent apps available at This is a super website with excellent free resources to allow for increased understanding of the core elements in Maths (especially the very challenging concepts of fractions) and also provide fun practice on number patterns and tables.

Spend 10 minutes a day and become a maths star. Race against the clock with your maths skills! Young learners excel in short bursts, so DK’s 10 Minutes a Day Times Tables app is the perfect introduction to maths for children. 

Number Pieces.JPG

Number Pieces helps students develop a deeper understanding of place value while building their computation skills with multi-digit numbers. Students use the number pieces to represent multi-digit numbers, regroup, add, subtract, multiply, and divide.


The Geoboard is a tool for exploring a variety of mathematical topics introduced in the elementary and middle grades. Learners stretch bands around pegs to form line segments and polygons and make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, fractions, and more.

Fractions lets students use a bar or circle to represent, compare, and perform operations with fractions with denominators from 1 to 100. Choose the fraction model and number of equal parts. Use a color to select specific parts to show a fraction of the whole.  Superimpose fractions upon each other to compare fractions.

Number Frames help students structure numbers to five, ten, twenty, and one hundred. Students use the frames to count, represent, compare, and compute with numbers in a particular range. The frames allow students see quantities as equal groups of other quantities and in relation to benchmark quantities. T

Students use Pattern Shapes to explore geometry and fractions, creating their own designs, or filling in outlines. As they work with the shapes students explore geometric relationships, think about angles, investigate symmetry, and compose and decompose larger shapes. Many of these explorations lead naturally to thinking about fractions as parts of a whole.
