For math contest enthusiasts, if you are preparing for MATHCOUNTS or other middle school and high school math contests, then the MATHCOUNTS Trainer App is a good app that you can try. The app contains thousand of problems from previous School, Chapters, and National Mathcounts. Note that all problems in this app have full solutions. For those who are not familiar with MATHCOUNTS, it is a nationwide mathematics competitions for middle school students in the United States.
In using this app, you can track your progress, compete with other players, and climb the Leaderboard.
The MATHCOUNTS Trainer app is FREE and available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. It also works offline.
One of the Geometry app I am currently enjoying playing is the PolygonFlux iPad app. This app shows the path of a point reflected inside a regular polygon creating beautiful patterns. The location and direction of the emitter can be changed, so you can create as many patterns as possible.
This application costs $0.99.
You can choose different polygons: triangle, square, pentagon, or polygons up to 14 sides. You can also choose from different themes and send your patterns to friends through email.
To mathematics students and enthusiasts who are looking for a free calculator app, you might want to look at the Good Grapher App. The Good Grapher app is an excellent grapher with lots of features. It can be used from elementary school up to graduate school. It is available as iPhone and iPad apps.
