Rocket Math Mobile joins together Math practice and realistic 3D rocket graphics. You’ll have three mission choices – test rocket, launch to orbit or dock with lunar lander. Your math problems will increase in difficulty as your missions become more difficult. You can choose to work on addition, subtraction, division or multiplication skills. Skills can be practiced individually or in combination with each other. The problems are presented as part of your mission preparation. Answer the problems and if you think you’ve got the answer correct you can launch your rocket. But be careful! If you’ve made an error in calculation your mission could go all wrong. A chalkboard is included for those (me) who need to write out problems in order to solve them. This feature was key for me because some of the calculations were tricky when I tried them in my head. Not that that’s saying much.
Rocket Math Mobile must be used on an iPad or an iPhone 4 or a 4th generation iPod Touch. The graphics are wonderful and they spin and adjust, giving you a complete look at outer space and your rocket in action. The sound effects are also realistic and give the app an authentic space feel. Rocket Math Mobile is another great app choice for older children who need an entertaining alternative to Math flashcards.
