Apps & Websites that can help with learning

Math
With math help I strongly suggest students and parents check out the website www.khanacademy.org This site has also created a great iPad and iPhone app that addresses all of the Common Core Math Standards from Kindergarten through the 12th grade as well as other many other subject standards.  You can download the app by searching for KhanAcademy in the iTunes App store or click here iTunes.  For Android devices there are a number of Khan Academy related apps click here for GooglePlay.

CPM Math Program
Student and Parent support for the math curriculum/program Hale utilizes.  Great tips and resources.

ALEKS Online Program 
A
ssessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.

Flash Card Apps
There are a number of iPhone and Android apps that are virtual note cards. Quizlet is very popular with high school students and with a bit of guidance it is easy for any middle school student to master. Go to www.quizlet.com.  You can download the app by searching for Quizlet in the iTunes App store or click here for iTunes or click here for GooglePlay.

Another iPhone app that students can create their own electronic flash cards is called SuperMemo. This site is geared toward older students so middle school students will definitely need parental help in navigating. Read more here http://www.supermemo.com/archive/2000/power1.htm . The iPhone and Android app is pretty easy to understand once one gets the hang of it. You can download the app by searching for SuperMemo in the iTunes App store or click here for iTunes or here for GooglePlay.
