Educational iPhone apps are hitting the market and I’ve just run across a great one for honing your math skills! A little app called Math Cards teaches students and adults math skills in a fun way.
Flash cards have been around for a long time teaching basic math skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, but they’re tedious and dull. Turning them into an iPhone App makes learning math an interactive experience that’s fun for kids of all ages. It’s even a great game to challenge adults and create faster response times.
Imagine math practice so rewarding it’s hard to stop – this little app was developed by William Janoch who was motivated by the desire to see his children learn whenever possible. He developed the Math Cards application for his daughters (ages 8 and 9) as a flash card application that provides the right combination of challenge and reward to keep kids interested, without being frustrated. Math Cards replaces “I don’t wanna” with “Let me do it some more.”
Features include: – Colorful cards, simple to operate
– Categories for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
– Improves Eye-Touch coordination
– Receive grades as they go
– Easy to download and install
