A free math app for teachers and schools? How terrific! I love math apps, and one with over 1000 activities, designed by math experts, is a great find. The parent version is free to download with a subscription for full access.
Teachers definitely need to add this app to their resources for math. Free access for both web and app versions provide engaging activities, worksheets and lesson plans. Matific is aligned with national and state curricula and mapped to many popular textbooks. What a win!

I hadn't seen Math Racer 3.0 until it went on sale, but I'm glad I found it! It's a great app for math facts fluency for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The app can be used for single facts, for addition/subtraction together and multiplication/division together, or all facts mixed. In school, students with 1:1 devices can compete against themselves, while classroom iPad sets can provide an opportunity for students to compete against each other. It's great for home practice, too!
Get it now while it's still FREE! No in-app purchases, either, just completely free for a limited time!
Bottom Line: A math app that truly does what no other apps out there can do: make sense out of word problems. Designed for kids ages 6-14, Math Shake walks users through the process of converting a word problem into an equation, and even allows them to record their thinking as they work through it. A must-have for kids struggling with word problems.
Bottom line: A brand new app that allows kids to practice math skills in a unique way through the use of matrices. It's a great way to practice visual perceptual skills also. Geared toward children in preschool through second grade, this app may require some initial instruction from an adult before appropriate independent play occurs, but once users get it, the learning that results from using this app could be significant.
