1-minute maths app | White Rose Education

This  app is aimed at Key Stage 1 pupils. There are individual one-minute tasks focus on adding and subtracting – and on ‘Subitising’, the skill of instantly recognising the number of items in a group without counting. Multiplication and division topics are also available. Children can choose any topic they want to try. They then answer a unique series of questions (so it’s a different set of questions every time). If they’re struggling with a question, a ‘Hint’ button will give a helpful clue by showing the question in a different but familiar way.When the one minute’s up, they’ll see a feedback screen telling them how they’ve done.
