Almost everyone has heard about the dreaded “test anxiety” that plagues many students. This causes them to somehow draw a blank about much of the work they have mastered or covered during their studies. This is usually overcome with a bit of preparation and advanced planning, and the AlgebraPrep: Factoring app is intended to help Algebra students really understand this topic and truly master it.
The AlgebraPrep: Factoring app uses several different tactics to ensure that the skills have been properly learned. The first are “mini tests” that require about ten minutes of time and allow the student to gauge their level of progress. The answers to the mini tests are demonstrated in short video displays that help the student to ensure they are reaching their answers or conclusions in the right ways. Next are larger practice tests that review each recently learned subject in greater detail. The student can save all of their test scores to the app and track their improvements or even their weaknesses in the factoring process.
There are other algebra topics covered in additional AlgebraPrep apps, but this one is the only example of a thorough review of the concepts involved in factoring. The app works exclusively with iPhone and iPod Touch devices.
The cost for this app is $2.99, and students are encouraged to visit the developer’s website to see which other topics are available for their course of study.
If you require a bit of support in your Algebra studies, this professionally designed review application is a great way to ensure your success.
