iPhone/iPad Apps Replace Paper Math Homework

It’s true, kids today really are growing up on digital devices. Educational app development company StudyPad has a new math app that does away with paper math homework and puts it all on an iPhone or iPad.

Splash Math Grade 1 is an iPhone/iPad app that comes with a series of comprehensive math worksheets for first, second and third graders. And the company is pitching teachers to use these worksheets in the classroom in lieu of traditional print workbooks.

The $4.99 app includes exercises and games to teach basic math skills such as addition, time, money and measurements. The app also gives parents weekly progress reports of the child’s strengths and weaknesses every Saturday morning via email.
