- Marble Math is one of the most fun, customizable, and effective math games available for older elementary school-age kids - Common Sense Media

- It requires both game skill to be able to roll the marble and math skill to understand and come up with the solution of where to roll it -

- Marble Math is incorporating just what the Common Core Curriculum is asking for and doing a superb job of it! - Teachers with Apps

- I'm impressed with the variety of math facts tested in each level, but also by how much customization you can do for your child - Cool Mom Tech

- Featured Best Summer Travel App - The Washington Post



Based on the Common Core Curriculum, Marble Math is an engaging way for upper elementary students to practice mental math. Earn new marbles and collect bonuses while reinforcing key concepts in pursuit of a high score. But watch out math whizzes! You’ll need to be focused and nimble to avoid the obstacles in your path.


Marble Math gives you the option to Replay the question or Show the correct answer in a game simulation, before moving on to the next problem.


Add as many custom profiles as you like. Individual game settings, including problem types by level, and scores are saved in each user profile. And the profile avatar creator is so much fun, it’s like its own game.


Along with high scores and three separate difficulty levels to suit different ages and abilities, there are 16 unique marble styles to choose from. Parents and teachers can customize gameplay to concentrate on specific math concepts by selecting problem types for each player and level or just let the game roll with random problem generation for unlimited practice and play!

    Love it! My son wishes you'd add new marbles for him to unlock.

  • A fun math game

    by F.Lobo

    My son spent last night playing this game in iOS 7 with no problem. In fact I had to tell him to stop playing. Great game.

    by Xjng

    REALLY FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kid approved

    by Jbaker5d

    My kid loves this game, which is rare. The only complaint I have is that there aren't more options for which kind of problems they are practicing.

  • Lots of Fun

    by SpikePuppy5

    My six year old grandson spent hours playing with this game when we installed it on his iPad mini. Some of the rounds are a little hard for a first grader but with his Dad's help he is mastering them all, even the Roman numerals which he had never seen before. The best part is that he doesn't think of it as educational, just so much fun.

  • Awesome but I wish there weren't any Roman numerals on easy

    by Cory Cook

    Great. You should get it but only one complaint about the Roman numerals on the easy level so that's why I'm giving it a 4-star rating.

  • Plays this game first!

    by Mcdjoann

    I thought my third-grade daughter would complain that I put another math game on my phone for her. She likes the Try again or show the answer button when you get it wrong

  • Fun!

    by Cgregoryrun

    This is a fun game to play with my first-grader who loves games, but hates studying! Love all of the customizations available!

  • should be #1 math app!

    by miminnehaha

    there's a debate raging about how America teaches math, processes vs mathematical thinking. this app combines the two and adds an arcade-style reward. My 9-year-old, my 12-year-old, and I can't stop playing. definitely going to be a big hit!!!

  • My kids love it!

    by nota newbie

    This is a fun math app! The sound effects are great, and it definitely feels like a game, but they are improving their skills!

  • Love it!

    by Yolanda705

    Love it!

  • Terrific

    by Wanda Bee

    This was just the App that I needed to help my child with practicing her basic math facts. I also like how the questions are designed. Fantastic that you can set the skill levels. Also quite fun while learning.

  • Great app

    by Brit fitz

    Finally a math app beyond addition and subtraction

  • Awesome app!

    by mahbrazil19

    Excellent app for kids!! It improves their math skills and it also helps solving math problems at school or homeworks, the cost is absolutelly worth it because your kid will never have to ask you those boring math questions again lol! Guarantee yours now

  • Great app

    by Big Daddy Pokin

    Fantastic app! Allows kids to learn and reinforces fundamental math skills while being entertained by a well designed fun game. It keeps my 7 year old interested and math has been a challenge for her. If an incorrect answer is chosen one option will allow you to retry while a second option will show the correct answer and how it was chosen. Excellent learning tool. I've shown the game to some co-workers and family and many adults seem interested in testing there skills and learning from their errors. I look forward to seeing what other interesting educational apps will come from the creators of Marble Math.

  • Wonderful cognitive learning tool

    by dandag

    This app really is great on so many levels. I always test apps out before handing off to my child and i spent and good amount of time playing with it. It was fun and a challenge even for me. There are multiple challenges happening at the same time that my child gets hooked all while practicing his math skills. Wonderful!

  • Awesome app Artgig!

    by Vzgirl4477
