[prMac.com] Washington, District Of Columbia - Times Table Master, a new app designed to help students master a key skill in math, was released today by a group of tutors who saw a better way to teach times tables. The app takes away the need to create problem sheets, and randomly generates unlimited problems for students to practice as much as they want. It is available now for iPhone.
"Drilling works well, but printing out thousands of pages of problems necessary for students to master their times tables was wasteful" said Michael Buchanan, one of the app's creators. "Instead, we made it easy to get an unlimited number of randomly generated problems. Working in the business let us see that there was a better way to do this."
The app is also smart - it looks at what the student is doing well and where they need improvement, and modifies the problem sets to both build confidence and challenge the student. "It might not be truly random, but the algorithm we've written makes it worth it" says Buchanan.
Students should find it easy to learn their times tables with this app, and parents should find it easy to track their student's progress. "We wanted to make it easy to see how a student is improving. After all, that's the goal here." says Buchanan. The app includes tracking functionality, showing exactly the information that is used to build up the algorithm and generate problems.
