[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - Monkey in the Middle Apps today is thrilled to announce the launch of their new educational game, Middle School Math 8th Grade, for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Students jump onto logs to make it across the river as they practice a variety of math concepts including equations, graphing, and geometry. Middle School Math 8th grade extends the series of the successful Middle School Math 6th and 7th grade apps.
Middle School Math 8th Grade has comprehensive coverage of all of the Common Core standards for 8th grade math. Available for all iOS devices, the app provides practice through small chunks of questions and guides the student through areas that need improvement. "We wanted to make it easy for students to learn on their own. Every practice section has its own tutorial with video examples, so students can easily get explanations on how to the problems," says app developer Thomas Kidder. "Our new app also has graphs and diagrams to help students understand important algebraic and geometric concepts."
Middle School Math 8th Grade Includes these subjects
* Rational Numbers
* Radicals and Exponents
* Scientific Notation
Middle School Math Pro 8th Grade adds these subjects:
* Linear Equations
* Identifying Functions
* Geometry 1
* Geometry 2
"This app is a great way for students to refresh their math skills after a long summer without much practice," says Andrew Meier, the founder of Monkey in the Middle Apps. "It's a fun and easy way to quickly review all the material you need for a new school year of math."
Of course, the app is also designed for teachers to use in the classroom. Students can practice math concepts learned in the classroom in the app and get instant feedback. Teachers can also easily get scores of their entire class using either email reports or web-based reports.
* iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch
