Based on the Common Core Curriculum, Marble Math Junior is an engaging way for early 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 Junior 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!



• shape recognition/matching
• sequencing number values and ordinals
• addition, subtraction and multiplication to 100
• identifying fractions
• counting money (USD, AUD, CAD, EUR or GBP)
• telling time
• completing addition equations

Additionally, early learners who may not be reading yet can tap on a problem to hear it spoken.

  • I wish I could give 5 Marbles rather than stars!!

    by TinaW249

    My 6yo LOVES Marble Math & so do I! Honestly, there aren't enough words to say how wonderful this app really is! Not only have the developers made an app that is fun for the kiddos, but it reinforces + teaches them skills necessary for development. There is even an area where if the kiddo touches a certain object, the kiddo will then have ONLY a "flashlight view" of the playing board, which btw, is my sons fav!! In this mode, the kiddos must use their memory of the board in order to not land on incorrect answers. I love it because, especially w/ boys, it teaches them to SLOW DOWN & pay close attn to what they see & remember. My son would race thru everything IF he could!! Thank you SO much for this amazing game app!

  • Good Idea, Not So Good Execution

    by JRRAUGIE364

    As a teacher, I found this app to be a great idea, however the app seems to be more focused on playing marbles than the math problems. Although the app may keep students attention, it is not teaching them as much as this app could. Since playing marbles is the main focus of the game, the students are not learning as much as they could about the math problems. While this app is a good idea, I believe it needs to have more of a focus on the math problems themselves in order to improve this game.

  • Good math practice

    by F.Lobo

    He likes the funny obstacles and collecting marbles. I like that I can set the math to work at his level. Level 3 is perfect practice for 3rd grade!

  • Great Math Game

    by MAS551

    My 6yr loves playing this game, rolling the marble around makes this more fun!

  • My kids' favourite

    by Jenny+Mary

    This is one of the few math apps my kids play with almost every day. I am happy they have improved math skills significantly thanks to this app!

  • Great app!

    by Dawn Aubrey

    My sons love this game. It is great way to have them practice math skills!

  • Can Not Choose My Own Marble

    by emmyola

    I just downloaded the app and was looking forward to having my son play it, however, we cannot choose which marble to use. Not a biggie but I paid for the app so I feel it should work properly-it does not.

  • Fun learning app...

    by dandag

    that my son keeps playing

  • My son is mad at me

    by Cgregoryrun

    because I am writing this review instead of letting him play this game. I'd call that a win for education, wouldn't you? Great app! Does what it says and has good customization options.

  • Finally, an app worth reviewing!!

    by JessJess409

    My five year old loves this app! Very easy to use and fun to play! I like that you can customize it for each payer. I can't wait for my seven year olds to get home from school so they can play it too! A very well thought out app! You will not be disappointed if you spend the money on this one. Engaging for long periods of time. So happy I got this one!

  • Very engaging!

    by Celena76

    My kids (6 & 7) love this app and so do I. Well worth the cost.

  • Marble math

    by M7;)

    Awesome, engaging , captivating, skill building . My son is an11 yr old with ASD who struggles with all concepts of math. This covers time , fractions ,addition, subtraction, multiplication, and counting money. He begs to play it everyday. Such a wonderful tool. Highly recommended!!!!!!!

  • Another great app from artgig apps!

    by MNteacher

    An excellent app on all counts! Fun to play and easy to customize to meet the needs of each player. As a special education teacher who has been using mobile devices with my students for two years, I highly recommend this app. Thanks artgig! Your apps are wonderful for my students.

  • Great educational, yet fun game!

    by Momspencer

    As a teacher it is great to see apps that are engaging for the kids yet helps to solidify the areas the kids need to work on. Thanks for a great app! Can't wait to use it next year!

  • My 7 year old loves this app!

    by IowaMommyof3

    We just purchased this app today (for free thanks to your one day sale), and my daughter LOVES it! OMG - haven't seen her this excited about a math app EVER. Wonderful app - great differentiated challenges for tiered skills. Highly recommended.

  • Download - you will love it

    by A.Nug

    KinderTown's Review: Marble Math Junior is an excellent example of how to merge quality game design with significant educational value. This app moves kids through the sequence of understanding the question, tapping into knowledge to form an answer and creating a strategy for navigating the gameplay maze. Getting answers wrong is not an issue here as it's highly motivating to learn through trial and error too. Take time to read the information pages to learn about all the features and customize the problems and levels. One of the most engaging, educational math apps we have played to date.

  • WOW!

    by Peatree2

    This app is great, and includes not only numbers but also US coin counting, telling time, and fractions! The unlockable marbles also keep everyone interested… and the app is universal! This should be expanded to other subjects like reading and science! (Find the verb, find Mars, etc.)

  • Great app for number sense

    by Reading Buddies

    I am a special education teacher and am always looking for apps that will help my students develop thinking skills. This is a wonderful math app which goes beyond drill and practice. It has lots of ways to customize so it is just right for your child. It's fun and engaging as well as educational. Highly recommended.

  • Wow!
