Two Math and Science Game Apps

21 Feb

A Pair of Gaming Apps

 

24 Game

You might remember the 24 game as a kid in school!  You get a card with 4 numbers and you have to add, subtract, multiply or divide your way to a total of 24. With this app for iPad, iPod, and iPhone, you can have your class play without the use of the cards.  The interactive nature of the app will definitely spark new interest in this game, as well as the ability to keep score and track fastest times!

 

SimplePhysics

The SimplePhysics app is available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod and is a great tool to have students work with some realistic physics as well as engineering.  Students can build simple to complex structures (it advertises tree houses to Ferris wheels) through a blueprint interface then subject them to various tests in a game-like environment.  Create structures that will withstand different forces, or simple create intricate designs.  An added feature is the challenge mode where students have to create designs like rooftops and bridges to meet certain specifications while also remaining in a set budget for their project.
