Math 4 Mobile - Five Mobile Math Apps

Math 4 Mobile offers five free mobile applications that mathematics students can use to learn about and solve a variety of problem types. The five apps perform the majority of functions that most students need through high school. I'm not sure that the apps will completely replace the need for graphing calculators, but I also don't think that Math 4 Mobile is trying to do that yet. Watch the video below to learn more about Math 4 Mobile's current and future offerings.

Applications for Education
Take a look around your classroom and you'll see that students almost never forget to carry their cellphones with them, yet they might forget to carry a calculator. Furthermore students rarely carry a calculator anywhere outside of mathematics class. Having students install these apps could mean that they will always have access to the tools they need to complete the mathematics assignments that they need to complete.
