MathBoard for iPad reviewMath Board is another excellent iOS app from PalaSoftware.  Every year of your child’s education career builds on the next.  With that being said it is critical to build a solid mathematics foundation.  MathBoard assists in building that solid foundation.  A solid foundation allows your child to excel in math and strengthen his or her self esteem.

One of the unique features of the iPad is the ability to emulate the classroom environment.  Palasoftware has hit a homeroom with its chalkboard design of MathBoard.  Working on math problems with MathBoard emulates writing or working in the classroom on a chalk board.

There are tons of options for configuring your app for your child/students needs.  I could see this app being used at home and in the classroom or school resource center.  My kids are still in elementary school however; I imagine this app can grow with them.  MathBoard is useful for children as young as 4 and up to age 13.  With the deep set of features and options you can set the application for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, squares and cubes.  Setting the problem style (vertical or horizontal) as well as number of problems for each quiz is very easy.  You can also set time limit and turn off or on negative numbers.  To top things off your child’s results are recorded and can be emailed directly from the application.  It’s very easy to set application for your child's specific needs and abilities.

This is a great app for building strong mathematic concepts and a solid mathematics foundation. Apple must think they are pretty cool since they featured MathBoard in the new iPad commercial (see below).  Cool pub from Apple.
