More than you ever wanted to know about 0maths.


0maths is developed, maintained and owned by Influenca Ltd (© 2020-2023).

It began as a personal project. I am not a teacher but an engineer. Engineering can be thought of as science-driven design and this approach is very evident in 0maths:


0maths is a bottomless pit of rapid fire, randomly generated practice questions across nearly 500 topics including addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, percentages, units, fractions, factors, time, money, units, geometry, area and algebra.

It is suitable for all pupils but was particularly designed to embrace the needs of nervous learners with the following innovations:


We're based in beautiful Aberdeenshire, Scotland. is hosted in the UK and all data is controlled from the UK.


0maths began slowly in 2013 or thereabouts, aimed at the needs of my own children.

In lockdown 2020, it changed gear. Like many schools, our own was struggling with the cycle of work being given, pupils printing the work, work getting back to teachers, getting marked, and feedback returned to pupils. The school pointed us to the many online resources but two out of three of my children found them stressful - wrong answers and visibly ticking timers increased anxiety and reduced learning. The third child got frustrated at having to play a pretty basic game between questions - a game that took longer than the questions. ("Can't I just do the questions?")

Since then I’ve been adding more to it. It’s been like climbing a mountain - every time the summit appears, it turns out not to be the summit. It’s now up to nearly 500 question types.

0maths has been designed to span the digital divide and be universally accessible. It should work fine on anything from a brand new laptop to a ten year old phone. Once it has loaded, it can be used without an internet connection.


School level maths is not about genius, it's about practice. Some kids need more practice than others, but more children are able to ace their maths than currently do.

Maths is important. It’s the language of the universe. It speaks truth to power. It teaches objective thinking. It makes complex problems easy.

We tend to take maths for granted because it was there right through our childhood, and once we know it, it's just so simple. Really though, maths is a series of spectacular, mind bending inventions which can be reproduced with a pencil and paper.

The very idea of counting is not inate. We (along with some other animals) can observe numbers to 4; beyond that we had to invent the means to record them. Many remote cultures use the number system "1", "2" and "many". The Romans invented the means for recording all numbers they had use for, but it was difficult to work with. The Indians did it better, perhaps magically, with the place-value system (though we credit the arabs for it). Try long multiplication with roman numerals, I dare you.

Other leaps forward came centuries later: zero, negative numbers, the decimal point... etc, and that's just the numbers. Without algebra, calculus, trigonometry, statistics, how much of the universe could we master?

So, there you have it: maths is awesome, and everyone should be given whatever they need to understand it.

Why 0maths?

Yeah, the name's misleading - kids may suppose they are going to get to do no maths at all.

It's called 0 maths because zero is a brilliant invention that made maths forever easier. I'd not be so bold as to rate my humble maths site as important as the invention of zero, but it really does make maths easier.
