Full Review:

Wish you could afford a tutor to help your kid with math? Need a refresher before tackling tonight's math homework? Take this app for a spin.

This math dictionary has 400 terms, presented with examples. While it's far from scintillating, it's highly useful for students (or parents!) who can't quite remember how you add fractions, or what an adjacent angle is. It's easy to add favorite terms to a notes section, for quick lookup later. At its heart, this app provides quick review of how to tackle most math problems that might come your kid's way.

With 400 terms tackled, it's got most math covered. Subjects include measurement, algebra, geometry, fractions, decimals, statistics, probability, problem solving, and much more. This is quick reference kind of stuff—not deep instruction, but it just might help your kid make it through his homework.

Teacher Features:
Works well as a reference tool for refreshing topics prior to testing.

Standards:Operations and Algebraic Thinking: Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1&ndash 100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1&ndash 100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1&ndash 100 is prime or composite. 4.OA.B.4. Numbers and Operations in Base Ten: Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10 and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10. Measurement & Data: Represent and Interpret Data: Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2 1/4 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. For example given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers find the amount of liquid each beaker would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally. 5.MD.B.2
