There's an App for That!

With the upcoming iPad initiative and the ever present use of personal iPads and other notebooks and mobile devices in our daily lives and the daily lives of our students, I am going to spend a great deal of time this quarter blogging about the many different Apps available to us as instructors and that are available to our students.  If you have an app you love - whether for teaching or personal use - please send it my way as I'd love to share it with everyone.

The first App I'd like to share with you is one that our amazing librarian Elaine Settergren found:
  • King of Math: This game app for iOS devices provides people with a fun way to refresh their skills across several areas of mathematics. The game starts you off as a farmer who must level up by answering several fast-paced math exercises across areas such as statistics, arithmetic and geometry.
Whether you teach a math specific course or not, I could see this as beneficial for all programs and all students.  Check it out and let me know what you think.  And once again, send your favorite Apps my way!
