I do think that math apps for the iPhone/iPad/iPod are a really fun way to learn and practice math. In some ways, very specific apps like the ones from iDevMath can serve as a private tutor for your child, teaching a concept step by step and provide problems for practice. Other math apps are meant to be really fun and are a way to use gaming to practice math facts. Still others provide an overview, like a Cliff Notes for a math subject. Algebra Boot Camp is not meant to be sexy, but it’s like reading someone’s very good notes for a refresher review. I believe in all of these concepts so I rounded up what I think are the best educational iPad and iPhone apps for kids. Now when your kids use your iPhone, you can feel good about making them math games!
I really like the concept of MathGirl Number Garden; make iPhone/iPad/iPod math games that appeal to girls! And it is really appealing to girls with graphics and music that are very sweet. But I find it to be an incomplete math app.
