Name of App: My Math Flash Cards App
Fee or Free: Free!
Seller: Power Math Apps
Why I like it: My Math App is an excellent app for students from many grade levels to use to practice math facts, including addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. It allows you to select which math concept you need to practice and then runs through a series of questions to answer. There are settings that allow you to select a particular digit (1-9 or a mix of all) as well as the number of questions you want in each set of problems (5-50, increasing by 5s). There is also a help feature that will give you the correct answer if you answer incorrectly, however, this feature can be turned off. The timer feature is excellent and could encourage some healthy classroom competition. It could also be a great way for students to challenge themselves. For example, a homework assignment could be to answer as many questions as they can in 60 seconds or 3 minutes, etc. Students could even track of their time so they can watch themselves improve with practice. Since both the starter and advanced levels both have single and multiple digit problems, an improvement that could be made to the app would be to the option to select only single or multiple digits. A great app to help students master these basic math concepts… Homework assignment: Download My Math Flash Cards App and answer as many questions as you can in 60 seconds!
