Let your kid solve the equations repeatedly and non-stop, improving their skills

Little Professor is a really simple math game for kids so they can practise mathematical operations with a calculator, you don't need anything else.

Let your kid answer the easy equations by tapping on the correct numbers and continue doing so until he makes a mistake, which will result in a message: error. If the difficulty it's too easy, you can help him change the level by tapping on SET and selecting the level number you'd like your kid to play.

grebulon is the developer of Little Professor and the Key, which works when the basic app is already installed, adding three extra levels. The design is simple but great for kids, with big numbers and an engaging drawing perfect for them.

Even though the app is especially addressed to kids, adults can also practise and remember their math skills in this straight-forward and simple educational app.

Developer's original description available here
The Little Professor is a math for kids preschool game.
It presents sets of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems in five degrees of difficulty.
Enter your answer by pushing the number keys. If you're right, the next problem will be presented. If you're wrong, "ERROR" is displayed. You're given two more tries, then the correct answer is displayed. After ten problems, your score - the number of right answers and the time it took to solve, are displayed. A feedback dialog will rate you with 1 to 5 stars. Then another set of ten problems begins with the same operation at the same level.
You can change the level and operation at any time.
To change the difficulty: press [SET], then the level [1] to [5], and finally press [GO].
To change the operation: press [SET], then the type [+] [-] [*] [/], or [9] for mixed operation mode. Finally press [GO].

The Little Professor is not only a preschool game, it also doubles as a simple calculator for kids.
To switch between trainer and calculator modes, press [SET] [MODE] [GO].

Great for kids and reminds me of the game I had when I was a kid. Well done.

Brings back fond memories. Would be even better if the original animations could be added for when you get an answer right or wrong.
