This app will answer a lot of HS parents prayers! No more struggling for those teachers who feel uncomfortable with math & science, no panic for those preparing for standardized testing, hear the choir of angels singing for those with visual learners - this is the app for you!! We have long used the website www.khanacademy.org with our boys. And this app coincides with the website. These are mini podcasts. Each video teaches a lesson. They are progressive - starting with elementary number sense and working its way through calculus! I have visual learners - books and worksheets do absolutely nothing but confuse my kids. So khan was an amazing find and it's free!!
The only reason I gave this app a 4 instead of 5 stars, is that there are no practice or interactive worksheets like the website has. The app is strictly the videos. I wish they had access to the practice that is available through the web page.
