FlashMath is an inexpensive application for the iPod Touch allowing students to be tested on Math facts. This app allows for complete control over the types of questions and the level of difficulty. The user has a lot of options to customize this fun Math game. You can set the app to ask a certain number of questions and choose the numbers from which it will choose from, so you can set it for bigger numbers (up to 1000) and more questions for more advanced math learning. Flash Math quizzes you on Addition, Subtraction, Division and Multiplication, and allows negative answers. You can even add in a progressive timer to make it more challenging.
Wired Educator gives this Educational App a thumbs up for both classroom usability as well as price. You can purchase it at the iTunes store.
FlashMath: .99 cents, customizable, engaging, works, buy it
This is one of many educational apps I will be reviewing here on Wired Educator. I have submitted a proposal to present An iPod Touch in Every Classroom as a possible presentation at the eTech Conference in Columbus, Ohio in February 2009. If accepted I will be demonstrating how I use an iPod Touch as a learning tool to reach students. I will show how the iPod Touch combined with Flip Video for podcasting, educational apps like this one, and much, much more can impact student learning.
