My sweet family gave me an iPad this past Christmas. {Swoon}

The first thing I did when I set my iPad up was to start searching for applications in the Education category. Okay, that’s not entirely true. It was the second thing I did after I installed Twitter.

Well, at least I’m coming clean here.

Anyway, back to the education apps. There are quiet a few of them that I’ve been trying out since Christmas that I’ll be sharing with you over a few posts. But, I had to start with my absolute favorite education application that I’ve used so far.

It’s MathBoard by Palasoftware.

We use it every day!

I’m happy with the results of Little Buddy wanting to “play” MathBoard on my iPad. It’s good practice and I certainly haven’t had to prod him to work extra on studying his multiplication and beginning division.

You can easily set the types of problems you’d like for your child to work on while they are using the application. Just place a check in the box by the type. That’s it. Easy peasy.

Then just customize the problems and number range you want your child to get practice using.

And then let ’em play. Thank goodness this was the problem I was given when I grabbed screen shots. Man, I would have been embarrassed had I gotten a hard one!

Be sure to take a look at the great tables provided in the application, too. If you have a visual learner like I do, these tables really help. It seemed to make things “click” for me, too. {wink}

Some highlights of MathBoard

  • Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Squares, Cubes, and Square Roots
  • Random number generation for quizzes (up to 250 problems per quiz)
  • Timed quizzes available
  • Ability to save quizzes
  • Replay wrong answers to show how problem should have been worked

If you don’t have an iPad, don’t sweat it. According to Palaware’s website, MathBoard is available for Mac and as a Chrome app for Google’s Chrome browser.

What application do you wish you had handily available for your homeschooling?
