Learning high-school mathematics doesn’t have to be that scary. Certain math apps can be pretty challenging, inventive and fun for mastering a few fairly advanced math concepts. We have compiled a list of 6 such apps for your reference in this article. Let’s go through them without further ado.
As the name suggests, it’s an app that lets the users manipulate algebraic equations through the use of a touch-screen technology.
You can do some things with it. Do you want to isolate a variable? You can do that by touching and dragging the Xs and the Ys to either side of an equation. Do you want to eliminate like terms? You can draw lines through them to make them go away. This app covers almost all levels of algebra, starting from the beginner to the very advanced level. This app is available on iTunes for download at a reasonable price.
Brainscape is a unique app based on neuroscience designed to record student inputs to create a specific study system for each student. This study system will be a unique one indeed; specific for each student on the basis of their knowledge and inputs.
Brainscape will ask a certain user questions as to how well s/he knows a particular topic. The responses are used to design a unique timing sequence for learning various subjects.
Brainscape also offers the users with its study information based on some subjects; that also includes high school mathematics.
Brainscape is available for free on iTunes.
Khan Academy: PreCalculus
This app offers an array of educational videos on almost every subject. The users will see a compilation of instructive videos about pre-calculus. These lessons are educated by some of the most innovative and creative thinkers in the world. All these videos are free and publicly available on the app. This app can be downloaded for free from iTunes.
The key to a good math performance is remembering and comprehending formulae. This app is easy to navigate, and the users can gather all standard formulae for algebra, trigonometry, geometry and more into a single program.
If you want to refer to the Sridhar Acharya formula, you can find the same in this app. Do you have trouble in remembering the Pythagoras’ theorem? It’s there in the app too. This app is available on iTunes at a reasonable price.
It’s a good app tailor-made for algebraic beginners. Ooops presents algebraic equations to the users and then asks the users to choose which numbers to place parentheses around in order to make the equation equal to the solution. The users can improvise as well by changing the location of the parentheses to depict the way through which the outcome of the problem can be changed.
It’s a great app to know about the order of operations as well as a few other basic algebraic foundations. This app’s available for free on iTunes.
Quick Graph: Your Scientific Graphing Calculator
A graphing calculator is undoubtedly a pretty handy tool, but it doesn’t come cheap.
This app is an interactive graphing calculator for your iPhone or iPad available for free on the iTunes.
That should be all for now then. Hope you had a good read.
