New apps help young students prep for math tests


While parents and educators debate the merits of common core standards for young students, many of those students are preparing for a series of tests designed to calculate their grasp of basic skills. To help them prepare, Bright Minds Publishing has released a pair of interactive practice math tests for children in the early grades.

"Common Core State Standards Grade 3 Math Practice Test" and "Common Core State Standards Grade 4 Math Practice Test" are now available for the Apple iPad in the iTunes App Store. The tests are designed to help kids improve their math proficiency in a variety of areas. The topics covered include  Operations & Algebraic Thinking; Number & Operations in Base Ten; Number & Operations-Fractions; Measurement & Data; and Geometry.

Both apps take advantage of the iPad's graphics and interactive capabilities. The tests range from simple quizzes to challenging multi-step problems. The tests are automatically
scored at the end and incorrect answers are highlighted so teachers and parents can easily identify specific learning areas that require more attention.

Each app costs $1.99 in the app store. For more details, visit the Bright Minds website. For more detailed information about Common Core Standards and the Bright Minds apps, download this Word document.
