We’ve been using the Mathseeds program for a couple of years now and have found it good. It follows the same format as Reading Eggs. Your child does a placement test and then works through lessons in each map. Each lesson has a number of parts where concepts are explained and then learnt through games. At the end of each lesson is a quiz to test the knowledge learnt. We’re using this as the main resource for learning Maths for Grade 1. In comparison, the IXL website was much less child-friendly and very test-orientated.


The Mathseeds Program has 200 lessons in total. There are fifty for each level from Kindergarten to Grade Three.

1-50 Kindergarten

51-100 First Grade

101-150 Grade Two

151-200 Grade Three


Driving Tests

These are optional tests reviewing the material that has been learnt and earning a chance to play a small game.

Grade 1

Numbers (24), Operations (20), Patterns & Fractions (14), Geometry (19)

Data (16), Measurement (19)

We plan to continue with Mathseeds to cover our core Maths concepts. The kids are also enjoying Dragon box apps so we will be using those in addition to Mathseeds.
