My Favorite Apps: Quick Math +

In the past I have written about some of my favorite apps including the King of Mathmath slide, line 'em up, the number rack, ten frame fill and the subitize tree.  Today I want to show you another of my favorite apps.

This one is called Quick Math + and it currently costs $1.99.  The single best thing about it is that it is completely easy to adjust for different abilities.  It has 4 basic "games" and each game can be played on 4 different levels.  This means I have been able to use this with students from grade 1 up to grade 5.

Here are the 4 different "games" you can choose from
Each game is offered at 4 different levels

The next best thing about it (and my students' very favorite thing) has been that they get to write the answers directly on the iPad screen using their finger.

A student writes the answer to the problem on the screen with their finger.  It does not matter how big or where on the screen it gets written!  This basically takes a routine practice worksheet and makes it seem like a game to kids.  
My students also like that they get a graph of their results and it shows how fast they completed a level.

For students who really like to move quickly through problems, the next problem is shown at the bottom of the screen so that they can be ready for it.  This is also a great feature if you have students sharing and iPad and taking turns.  One student can be thinking while the other is answering.
Here are a few more screen shots to give you an idea of how much the difficulty can change based on what level you choose.

What apps are you using with students?  Please leave a comment below and include a link to a blog post if you have one!
