May 14, 2011

As a tutor, I’ve seen how important mastering mental math, formulas, and all that stuff most students find boring can be. These apps will help your students refine their skills, and might even get them to have some fun doing it.

Math Workout

This game is loaded with a lot of fun games and challenges to increase your addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills. I won’t lie, I’m a big fan of the math blaster. This will help with increasing a student’s automatic recall.


Learn Math via Videos

Often, my students get stalled out on questions because they can’t remember a formula. This is a nice reference to have at your fingertips to help with HW.


Math Flash

If your student responds better to the straightforward approach, this app works just like paper flashcards, but there’s no tedious copying with a sharpie required. It’s the same concept (increase recall of mental math), just without the bells, whistles, and games of some of the other apps


Kids Numbers and Math

Most of this list is aimed at elementary students, but for the youngest math learners, this app will help them get started! Not only will it help your little Einstein learn his/her numbers, it will ease them into comparing numbers through addition and subtraction.
