This Week's Favorite Kindle (mostly) Math-Oriented Apps
Mathemagica: Range of math skills and operations covering all grade levels
Multiplication Genius: Basically flashcards, but good for drill
Kid Math: Sort of a flowery space-invaders kind of way to practice facts
Minecraft Pocket Edition: Work with 3-D shapes and spaces
DragonBox Algebra 5+: Thank you, Charlotte, for the recommendation.
Others we like:
Art Memory Game (lite)
*Must have web enabled to run these apps, and they don't work in Kindle FreeTime, i.e. the application which lets you set time limits so that you don't have to hover over people or worry about hearing the oven timer. Still, we like them a lot. The 5th grader has been full of cosmological information lately, gleaned from a BBC series on the planets, and we all find the SaintCasts fun. Of course, we can just listen to SaintCast.org on the computer, but the 4th grader especially likes having it on her Kindle, so that she can listen even when nobody else wants to.
