You might have seen a review that FeedMyApp posted a few weeks ago that showed just how far countries like the US and UK had slipped behind many Asian countries when it comes to mathematics. One of the reasons stated was that Asian students tend to work harder. I'm not sure that's the only reason but there's little doubt that there's a fair bit of work still to be done if they want to catch up. Here's a new mathematics app for iOS that monitors students of all ages by sharpening up their math skills and letting them know what they need to work on to keep up. 

MathSmart Flashcards is a clever little app that works on the, surprise surprise,  flashcard theory to review and practice math facts by using a variety of 'games' to master the art. The app uses a whole bunch of methods including timed practice, number searching and repetitive practice to give users the ability to recall basic facts and maintain fluency in order to make everything easier in their math class at school. 

MathSmart is a smart math flashcard app that monitors what you know and where you still need practice. There are five separate activities to choose from and users can choose which skills need improvement. These include reviewing math facts, using timed practice for good discipline, playing find the missing number, practicing all the math facts to achieve the mastery of quick math. The ability to have a quick mental recall of basic math facts will make everything easier when it comes to being successful in school or when put under stressful situations in examinations. The bottom line being that fluency in math skills makes everything easier when it comes to the real thing. 

The app uses a color-coded format so students and parents can easily see where more work needs to be done. All the obvious math operations are dealt with including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It also deals with all the different levels of ability from the simplest equations to more complex ones with the app showing the correct answers when mistakes are made. Users can also customize the app so that various numbers and operations can be prioritised for areas that need to be worked on and it can be made as easy or as hard as required. There are ten separate levels of increasing difficulty as the route to mastery skills starts with simple problems and works its way up to more difficult ones and while monitoring the progress a student is making as they progress. Any incorrect answers will be repeated until the student understands the problem and gets the answer correct. 

MathSmart Flashcards is great for all ages whether it be for beginners in K12 or for older students that need a bit of extra work to refine their skills. It even works well for adults who might need a bit of extra help to get them up to speed on the math front. One of its most important features is its ability to teach the multiplication tables - something many schools fail to prioritise these days. The basic flashcards are visually very appealing, user friendly and perfect to enhance rapid recall and fluency of memory. What's more, they are free. MathSmart is all about improving math skills but is also excellent for students, parents and teachers as it monitors the progress they are making. They will also be pleased that the app has no ads to distract. MathSmart is available in the App Store now.
