Anything that makes my 8 year old want to do math, especially word problems, is great in my book. The animal theme really appeals to her, and sneaks in learning about animal groups.

iLiveMath Key Differentiators

iLive Series Key Differentiators:

  • Automated Grading: Teachers and Parents use auto-generated email and blogs to keep track of student progress.  Examples of recorded grammar app tests and math app tests show how questions are randomly compiled and how the test captures the student's correct, incorrect answers, the final percentage/count scores, and answer key.
  • Universal Apps: Most all of the educational apps for the iPad also run on the iPhone and iPod Touch as universal apps however we are starting to experiment with dedicated Educational iPad Apps which will allow us to maximize the features and functions of the iPad.

iLiveMath Oceans has been featured in "Back to School Apps" and "What's Hot" on iTunes.  The app includes marine life photographs taken by iHomeEducator: humpback whales, sea lions, otters, and more combined with math word problems for a cross-curriculum teaching supplement.

iHomeEducator has released a new educational app for Kindergarten to 6th grade. iLiveMath Oceans includes over 30 types of sea creatures, educational links, and educational videos with over 100k randomly generated math word problem questions which teach addition, subtraction, and fractions.

"...iLiveMath apps are engaging and succeed in making mathematical connections to real world scenarios thus allowing math to 'come alive' for students. This is a great alternative to traditional practice while still providing meaningful problems to further develop concepts", states Hyperhomeschool blogger.

"These games are child and adult friendly. I especially loved playing just to look at the gorgeous, colorful photographs. Even better is the ability to learn 'on the go' as I usually have my iPod with me when out and about, while waiting at the doctor's office, or anywhere else I happen to be." states The Homeschool Desk

Just like the previous iLiveMath apps, students and teachers can collaborate on word math problems using Twitter, email, and blogs. Questions are asked and the student selects the answer from a picker dial. The student is then provided immediate correct or incorrect feedback.
