FREE Educational App Helps Kids Enjoy Math!
Education and entertainment come together in this new fun, FREE app (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) that challenges middle school kids to test their math skills. 101 Math has just been released by the App Store. The math problems are excerpted from the award-winning book, 101 Things Everyone Should Know About Math, written by a brainiac team consisting of an engineer, an actuary and an educator. The app contains 24 math questions, is easy to navigate and has great graphics and sound. Answers are provided at the end of each section with detailed explanations for the correct answers. This app is geared towards kids ages 11 to 15, yet it is fun—and challenging—for the whole family.
