What is The Number Race?

It is a fun computer game that lets you play with numbers, while training basic concepts of number and arithmetic:

  • Number formats: concrete sets, digits, and number words
  • Counting: practice with numbers 1-40
  • Addition and subtraction in the range 1-10

Who would benefit from playing?

The Number Race is primarily designed for children aged 4 to 8.

Children who are making their first steps with numbers will learn the basic concepts of number and arithmetic. Older children, who are already familiar with numbers, will build their fluency in arithmetic and in mapping numbers to quantities (number sense).

The game is especially designed to address mathematical learning disabilities (dyscalculia), by strengthening the brain circuits for representing and manipulating numbers.

The Number Race focuses on small numbers. For more advanced children consider using The Number Catcher.
