Mental maths is the method of doing calculations in your head without using any tools like a calculator, abacus or pen and paper. Mental maths proves to be really useful in our day to day lives in situations such as kinds stuck in maths while studying while others adding tax or sales price at a shopping mall, using proportional thinking while cooking to alter the recipe, calculating the tip intended for a service, converting from one unit to another or building something.
Mental maths actually helps us keep our brain sharp and quick. Like the muscles, the brain also gets stronger and efficient with every use. Mental maths also enables one to improve their sense of numbers and the ability to understand the relation between quantities.

The app was developed by Pierre Stanislas who told me that “The compulsory Covid quarantine made him spend a lot of time alternating between work-at-home and homeschooling for his twins (9 years old), which made him realize he needed a bit of nudging to progress at mental maths… being an Apple enthusiast he looked at what was available in the AppStore and quickly realized that none of the apps approached mental maths the right way i.e. this is something that is best learned verbally, with no visual clue whatsoever.”
