We offer Math 7, Pre-Algebra 7, and Algebra 1 for our 7th graders at Valley. For our 8th graders we offer Pre-Algebra 8 and Algebra 1. Here is a collection of apps that we are testing out for our Math curriculum. Please let us know if you would like us to try any other apps out.
KickBox. $1.99 Starting in our 3rd grade students are introduced to a character named JiJi who helps them learn progressively more complicated mathematic rules. KickBox by MIND Research Institute brings JiJi to the iPad. We are currently testing this app out for our ARC (Academic Resource Center). This version includes games dealing with lasers, as students work through problem solving techniques. It did seem quite limited, in the scope of the style of problems and in the level of difficulty. I hope that they incorporate more of the algebraic equations from their web version in a future version.
