More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 5+.

Pratice arithmetic just like Abe Lincoln. Updated for the21st century.

Blackboard Math HD is the ONLY tablet-native app that uses the entire HD touch-screen as a virtual slate for children to solve math problems longhand. It is not a cell phone app with scaled up graphics to fill-in a larger display. It is not an arcade-style math game with lots of blinking lights and distracting graphics. It is not another math app limited to simple mental math problems and multiple-choice answers. Rather, it is a modern take on the traditional method of learning math: careful practice and working out problems longhand.

Blackboard Math HD follows the adage, "if you want to remember something, write it down," Blackboard Math HD has students writing down their work as they go about solving complex, multi-digit arithmetic problems longhand. The benefits of solving math problems longhand are multifold:

* Allows the child to see the steps involved in the problem
* Makes complicated problems more solvable
* Improves learning by involving the fine motor control centers of the brain
* Creates a written record to determine any sources of repeat mistakes

Blackboard Math HD saves students' work so parents can review it later. Parents are free to be coaches and mentors, while the app itself does the rote work of generating problems and grading answers. Also, Blackboard Math HD tracks how long and how often your child uses the app. Parents can be assured their child is making an effort on their math practice.


Blackboard Math HD features:
* Children will need to be old enough to write numbers with their finger
* Adjustable difficulty by selecting magnitude of numbers (9-9999)
* Select operator to practice (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)
* Records worked problem sets for later review by parents
* Multi-user sign-in supports sharing the NOOK among multiple children in a family

NOTE: THIS VERSION IS FOR NOOK HD, HD+, AND GALAXY TAB 4. OWNERS OF NOOK AND NOOK COLOR TABLETS SHOULD CHOOSE THE non-HD APP "Blackboard Math."
