Even your entertainment-centric iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch can give you a push in the right direction with a carefully selected application.
There aren’t a lot of educational applications for older students, but Middle School Math Pro 7th Grade is a great one. You can flex your math muscles by practicing in a number of specific categories – to be fair, the game makes it easy to identify target areas that needs attention. There are even three levels of difficulty for each topic, so you get to try more complex equations when you start getting the hang of the concepts.
Game play is easy; you only have to guide the adorable monkey down the ladder, answering a bunch of questions along the way. Just tilt your device back and forth to control the monkey. These simple mechanics allows players to focus on the math skills that need honing. Functionality over design.
