Mathigon can seamlessly adapt to different abilities, and a virtual personal tutor provides tailored help and feedback in real-time.

Mathigon is used by thousands of students and teachers around the world. This mobile app is available for phones and tablets, works completely offline, and is free to use.

Really is the math book of the future

I’ve been a CS and math middle and high school teacher, as well as studying it in college. I have to say that this is one of my favorite mathematical tools to use on my own to explore big ideas.

Each section is wonderfully animated, crafted, interactive and informative. I couldn’t ask for me.

ummmm why these all taken ,

Great app but just one question

So I feel like this is a amazing idea for an app. I originally found this app off the website, and was very exited that you had an app. I was using the multiplication fact flash cards on the web site so when I downloaded this app I was hoping for the multiplication flash cards can you please help me find them or put this in I was very disappointed to not be able to find them, this is a amazing app other than that little thing.

m.a.teo ,

Finish making the lessons, and don’t slack off

So, not many people use this, but there still are people who use it, and most of them like it. However, I have a complaint about the lesson making speed. It’s TAKING TOO LONG! And second of all, the newest update didn’t bring any new lessons, just bug fixes and new stuff in Polypad, even though its supposed to be the textbook of the future. So please, finish making the lessons, and don’t slack off.
