For the (Good) Free Apps of the Day, I generally don't like recommending apps that are just part of a full app that costs money, but in this case I'm going to make an exception. The trial versions of the Splash Math apps are consistently ranked among the top free education apps in the App Store.
The lite version of Splash Math - 3rd Grade Worksheets, provides two of the full app's 16 chapter for free, with the other 14 available for purchase as a whole or individually if you want your child or student to work a specific section.
Two free chapters of a Splash Math app is a better deal than most math apps and the free versions give you an excellent chance to try it and see if you'd like to invest more because, even though they are expensive by app standards, the Splash Maths are apps you should seriously consider having on your iOS devices.
Splash Math is a fun and innovative way to practice math. All of the included problems are aligned with state standards for 3rd grade. In this free version, we have two chapters as free and rest all can be bought through in-app purchases.
The content is highly interactive. Children drag and drop shapes, pop bubbles, rotate clock hands and more to solve problems. The user interface is simple and clear with lots of pictures so that problem solving is fun.
★ Learn at your own pace:
Splash Math enables your child to learn various math concepts at his or her own pace. After each question, the app appropriately chooses the next question. Each topic starts with an easy level and based on the child's progress, the medium and hard levels are gradually unlocked. The practice mode can be used to focus on problem areas.
★ Have fun while learning:
Take a break between sessions and enjoy playing with fun creatures in the aquarium. Earn new ones such as angel fish, clown fish, squid, crabs as you earn more points. The more you practice more the prizes!
★ Track your child's progress:
And last but not least, you can also configure the app to send you reports by email to monitor your child's activity.
★ Topics Covered:
1. Place Value (Free)
2. Number Sense (Free)
