Quick Math


Quick Math is one of several math apps by Shiny Things. Quick Math is currently $1.99, but I have seen it free before!  This app is geared toward students learning simple addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  Shiny Things does have an app for younger and older students.

Quick Math is rather simple and reminds of a flash cards. Students can create an account, but the teacher doesn't get any reports from these accounts.

Next the student selects the operation and the level.

Students will see math problems appear on the screen. In order to answer, the student has to write the answer using their finger. I like this instead of having them select from four choices.

 

 I like this app, because it gives students a way to practice their math facts on an individual basis because the app gives you feedback. With flash cards, you really need a second person in order to get that feedback.

You can also read my thoughts of this app on Common Sense Graphite here.

What are your thoughts? Have you used any of the Shiny Things apps in your classroom?
