Math BINGO App

I used to play thisĀ app when I was younger! There are 5 different types: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and mixed, and there are 3 levels of difficulty. You get to choose a avatar, and by playing, you unlock BINGO Bugs- the goal is to get them all. This kept me hooked on the game even after I got all the BINGO Bugs!


Quizlet is an amazing resource for students. With millions of study sets and study notes, it’s an app that every kid will use from middle school on up through high school.

Simple Physics App

SimplePhysics lets you design complex structures for everything from tree houses to ferris wheels and then simulates your design with a sophisticated physics engine.” This is a very interesting app which you use to make structures, and then you can test it with a close to reality physics simulator. This is perfect for children who like to be creative and imaginative, but still stimulates their brain.

Stack the Countries App

As you learn country capitals, landmarks, geographic locations and more, you carefully build a stack of countries that reaches the checkered line to win each level. You earn a random country for every successfully completed level. All of your countries appear on your own personalized maps of the continents. Stack the Countries was really  easy to learn and was challenging to beat sometimes! It is great for gifted children because it keeps them occupied, because they are playing to get something (get all of the continents.)

Trainyard App

In Trainyard, the goal is to get every train to its corresponding station. “As the game progresses, you’ll have to use colour theory to combine trains of different colours, use timing to merge and split trains, and use every inch of your brain in your quest to beat the game.” This app requires a lot of concentration and smarts- perfect for a gifted child to play in the car, waiting for their sister’s gymnastics practice to end, and more.

Unblock Me is a puzzle app. The goal is to move the red block off the board by sliding the other blocks out of the way in the least amount of moves.
