Students Stay Sharp this Summer with New Math App
Longmont, Colorado – Monkey in the Middle Apps announces the launch of their new educational game, Middle School Math 6th Grade 1.0, which is available now from the App Store. Have fun popping balloons as fast as possible while practicing 6th grade math topics. With the previously released 7th grade math and 8th grade algebra apps, students now have great tools for practicing and reviewing for all of their junior high math classes.
Be Ready for Middle School:
“I remember the summer before middle school and the packet of math worksheets my teacher gave me to practice,” explains Jeffrey Meier, one of the app’s developers. “We made this app to replace all that paper. It’s fun and it tells me right away how I’m doing and what I need to do next. We want students to feel ready and confident as they make the big jump from grade school to middle school.”
Avoid the Summer Brain Drain:
After working hard all year, many students forget what they’ve learned over the summer. This is called the Summer Brain Drain and is a big challenge teachers face every fall. Practicing with apps is one solution. Students get immediate feedback about how they’re doing and have instant access to review notes and online tutorials.
Fun Practice, Anywhere, Anytime:
Summer is a busy time and Math 6th Grade takes advantage of the time available. Just pull out your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch when you have a couple of minutes. The app remembers your progress and guides you what to work on next. Learning takes place in small chunks whenever and wherever it is convenient.
While it’s fun for students, this app has also been designed for teachers. The quiz topics have been carefully chosen to follow common textbooks and core standards. Each quiz also includes review notes and links to online tutorials and videos. Most importantly, teachers can track progress for an entire classroom using either score emails or web-based reports.

* Commutative, Associative, and Distributive Properties
