XtraMath – awesome math drill site – free!

 

 

Maybe some of us are finding our kids are a little rusty in the math facts department after the summer break? This website will help you!

Sign up for free and XtraMath visually charts your child’s progress with quizzes. It is expected that your child will login every day and practice. It’s an awesome site that encourages self-competition. There’s nothing better than beating your previous score!

You can set yourself up as a teacher/parent and have any number of children ‘report’ to you. You can be notified of quiz results and how each student is doing. Your child can also be reminded to login and practice too.

Be sure and take a look – you won’t regret it.

Solar Walk – 3D Solar System model app – sure beats styrofoam balls!

Now that it’s back to school time, it’s time to start thinking ahead to all those cool projects where you’ll be dreaming of whipping out your paste and glitter. Well hold on there a minute, hotshot! This year you can keep your styrofoam balls and broken wire hangers for someting else because you won’t be using it for a solar system. Not after seeing this app.

Check out Solar Walk – 3D Solar System model. It’s an unbelievable and fascinating walk through our universe. You’ll learn about the planets, their history, points of interest and more.

This highly rated app has been featured by Apple as Best Apps of 201o and 2011.

My favorite part is the price – it’s currently $0.99 – that’s 70% for back to school time.
