Smart Phone Math Apps

By | March 21, 2012

There are millions of smart phone apps available for your iphone or android phone.  While some games were designed to occupy your time, there are some apps that may improve your child’s math skills.

In this digital age, we recommend downloading and trying these applications but a parent’s involvement is critical in order to get the maximum benefits.

  • Make it a game to see who can get the answer first.
  • Give appropriate rewards or incentives for completing assignments.
  • Encourage your child with positive words when he/she gets the wrong answer.
  • Explain how math is used in everyday situations.

The next time you are in the car, have your child practice some math problems before he/she plays the next hottest game.
