Key features

Ages 5 up to 14

Numbershark is used mostly in primary schools and early-on in secondary schools, but the range of games, concepts and topics, and the quirky graphics make the program work for any age group.

Dyscalculia, catch-up, SEN

Numbershark’s games and topics are particularly good for students with dyscalculia or for those with gaps in their understanding. The program adapts to their needs and builds their confidence.

500 topics

As well as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, topics include negative numbers, common percentages, simple fractions and decimals. Numbershark also develops maths vocabulary and has more than 2,000 worded problems.

Concepts and practice

Over 50 games give meaning to numbers and number operations, teaching concepts and providing practice. A ‘recommended’ games tab helps you choose the best games for your topic.

Seeing & understanding

A range of different visual formats helps students make sense of numerical concepts, each finding something that’s meaningful for them.

Adaptability & progress

Students can work independently, on specific areas that need consolidation – removing the pressure that comes with classwork and helping to narrow the attainment gap. The program keeps a record of their progress.
