Today we’ve got back to school iPad apps from Elevated Lab Press called Elevated Math. Elevated Math takes middle school math learning several levels higher. This iPad app is chocked full of math lessons (over 150 math lessons) and covers instruction in geometry, algebra, probability, estimation, place value, SAT and more.
The iPad tablet offers a unique and engaging platform for this math learning iPad app. Students can learn math in a self-paced environment and can purchase additional lessons as needed (Elevated Math comes with two complimentary lessons). Elevated Math also includes additional free materials on their website. (Screenshots and Video demo after the break)
I’m no math education expert but it is plain to see that these are top quality math lessons that teach and captivate better than any middle school curriculum that my son went through. The high quality cartoon animations demonstrate the wisdom behind the design of this app. The integrated whiteboard to work out problems on, is also a nice touch for this iPad app. Elevated Math has over 15,000 interactions that offer the student immediate feedback from the lessons they are working in.
We also like the career-oriented video documentaries that feature 20 different professionals who use math in the workplace. These beautifully shot and edited documentaries answer the universal question of math students, “Why do I have to learn this stuff”. These videos help bring relevance to learning math. Here is the break down for the multitude of available math lessons available in Elevated Math iPad app.
- Measurement – 12 lessons on attributes and tools (the units, systems, processes, applications of measurement, and estimation), and perimeter, area, and volume.
- Geometry – 22 lessons on points, lines, angles and triangles, characteristics of geometric shapes, coordinate geometry and spatial visualization, and transformation of shapes
- Numbers and Operations – 40 lessons on whole number operations, integers, fractions, decimals, factors, decimal operations, exponents, powers, computational fluency of fractions, ratio, proportion, and percent.
- Algebra – 90 lessons covering the concepts found in a middle grade Algebra 1 class. Patterns are represented and analyzed, and linear functions are represented with tables, graphs, verbal rules, and symbolic rules. Nonlinear relationships are studied, as are polynomial, exponential, and rational functions. Expressions are manipulated and simplified, and equations and inequalities are solved. And much more…
- Data analysis and probability – 9 lessons include selecting and using appropriate statistical methods for data analysis, developing inferences and predictions based on data, and applying basic concepts of probability typically covered in grades 6-8.
