What is The Number Catcher?

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

  • Basic calculation skills: addition and subtraction
  • Number formats: concrete sets, digits, and number words
  • The base 10 principle and the logic of multi-digit numbers

Who would benefit from playing?

The Number Catcher is primarily designed for children aged 5 to 10 but its higher levels can be fun for adults too!

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.

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

The Number Catcher focuses on two-digit numbers. For children who make their first steps with numbers, consider using our more basic game The Number Race.
