Back in the day, my parents helped me to study for my math tests with flashcards. I hated flashcards, especially because I was always losing them! This app provides a good way to keep all of your students’ math study materials in one place.
Middle School Math 8th Grade aims to make math fun by turning it into a game. Players must help the monkey jump across the logs to the end of the level. Answer questions correctly, and the monkey will make it to his final destination.
Learning these helpful math skills now can ensure that your kids do better in their all-important high school math classes.
You can also use built-in flashcards, or unlock additional fun math games. The graphics here are fairly simplistic, and some kids might turn their nose up at the look of this educational title. Still, it beats studying the traditional way, even if the interface feels a bit clunky and hard to navigate at times.
If your child is not in eighth grade (or not yet working at the eighth grade level in math), Monkey In The Middle Apps LLC offers a variety of related apps for different age ranges. In addition to math, science and vocab are also covered for middle school curricula.
You can see a full list of the company’s educational apps here. Select titles include “Middle School Algebra” and “Middle School Vocabulary 7th Grade.”
Overall, for kids who need a bit of a push to get interested in math, this app is a solid option. It may not be flashy, but it is helpful!
Middle School Math 8th Grade requires iOS 4.3 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
