BY THE NUMBERS
This new iPhone App called Math Tricks caught my eye, given my inner math geek. Here's how it's developer Ken describes it:
This mental workout takes you through every problem and gives you step-by-step tricks to improve your speed and accuracy. It offers an easy to understand chalkboard visual, which keeps track of your "score" as you progress.
Math Tricks is perfect for long drives, flights, and waiting in lines. It's excellent for all ages (only knowledge of multiplication is necessary) and all skill levels as it allows you to select a specific category or from all seven lessons."
He's even prepared a YouTube video that shows the $0.99 program in action
The program reminds me of Vedic Math from a while back. But it's done on a slick iPhone app, and is fun to use. Check it out if you're looking forward from the usual iPhone game fare.
