[prMac.com] Redwood City, California - Remember the time when you as a child, had to sit with those boring math workbooks doing homework? Workbooks laden with dull math questions on streams of white paper - what a drudgery that was! But, ever since the iPad stepped into classrooms all that has changed. Those long, tedious and uninteresting sheets have now transformed into animated, colourful and interactive digital pages, all on exciting touch-screens with amazing activities thrown in. That's the power of the iPad in education, where children are learning and having fun too!
Math workbooks are a passe now; and awe-inspiring apps with novel imagery and dynamic content are ruling the academic roost in app stores instead. The future of education is digital now!
Studypad, innovators in the revolution for digital education (for iPads and other hand-held devices), made a super 'splash' with their titles, quite justifiably called the Splash Math Apps series! Aimed at pre-schoolers, and those in junior school; as well as teachers and parents, the interactive apps are a novel way to introduce children to the world of numbers and basic concepts in math.
The Splash Math Grade 1-4 apps have had great reviews from both parents and teachers as well. Here are some...
* Winner of "Best Elementary Student App" (2011), by BestAppEver
* Featured in Apple's "Staff Favorites", "What's Hot", "New and Noteworthy"
Following those footsteps, Studypad, has now introduced its 5th Grade App for children, the 5th Grade Math: Splash Math Worksheets App [HD Full].
Once again laden with a very fresh approach to the series, Grade 5 has 9 chapters covering an endless supply of problems, and is by far the most comprehensive math workbook in the app store. Aligned to the common core standards this app covers the following topics: Place Value, Number Sense, Algebra, Multiplication, Division, Fractions, Decimals, Measurement and Geometry.
What's more, Grade 5 is divided into different topics, and each enriched with a bunch of worksheets as well! These worksheets are very similar to everyday homework questionnaires; except that, they are more fun to practice! These adaptive and interactive questions have been designed such that every time a child attempts a worksheet, he gets a new question ranging from the same level of difficulty. Hence, these worksheets can now be assigned as homework, classwork or whatever you choose. Owing to their regenerative nature, they can be assigned repeatedly to a child until mastery in that particular topic is attained.
Other attractive features of these apps, and which you will find included in Grade 5 as well are as follows -
* Interactive Content - Children drag and drop shapes, pop bubbles, and more to solve problems. The user interface is simple and clear with lots of pictures so that problem solving is fun.
* Personalized Learning - Each worksheet starts with an easy question and based on the child's progress, questions of the medium and harder difficulty levels start appearing.
* Weekly Email Reports - You can track your child's progress reports by our awesome weekly email reporting feature. Parents simply love it!
* Scratch Pad for Rough Work - Child can use a scratch pad for all his rough work.
The entire Splash Math apps series (apart from the recent inclusion of 5th Grade), comprises the following products:
* 1st Grade Math App
* 2nd Grade Math App
* 3rd Grade Math App
* 4th Grade Math App
These apps are available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Free Lite version of all the above mentioned apps are also available.
