Get in touch with algebra with Algebra Touch for iPhone, iPad

Algebra Touch, by Regular Berry, is an iPhone an di

Have you forgotten most of your algebra? Algebra Touch refreshes your skills using techniques only possible on your iOS device.

  • Say you have x + 3 = 5. You can drag the 3 to the other side of the equation.
  • Enjoy the wonderful conceptual leaps of algebra, without getting bogged down by the tedium of traditional methods.
  • Drag to rearrange, tap to simplify, and draw lines to eliminate identical terms.
  • Distribute by sliding terms across the sum, and Factor them back out by dragging them together.
  • Easily switch between lessons and randomly-generated practice problems.
  • Create your own problems or edit current ones.
  • Current material covers: Simplification, Like Terms, Commutativity, Order of Operations, Factorization, Prime Numbers, Elimination, Isolation, Variables, Basic Equations, Distribution, Factoring Out, Substitution, and 'More Advanced' mode.

As a math educator, this app makes me very excited. One of the challenges of teaching algebra is finding effective teaching techniques geared towards visual learners. Algebra Touch is not only a great visual tool, but a very physical and hands-on one.

Algebra Touch is available on the iPhone and iPad for $2.99. Screenshots after the break.

Record and share audio with TinyVox

TinyVox • Infinite Tape Deck is an iPhone app that lets you quickly tape any audio and deploy it.

Typing is too slow. Your ideas won't wait for you to scribble them down. And how will you remember the conversations you have with your friends in a year?

What you need is a tape deck to let you talk out your ideas freely so you can type them out later or email them to your team or post them on a bulletin board or Twitter...

  • Email to self for private notetaking
  • Email to anyone else as either an mp3 attachment or a link - the second anyone clicks your link, they'll hear your audio, because our landing pages autoplay
  • Post to your Facebook wall or type in a URL anywhere in Facebook
  • Post to Twitter - you can DM, @-message, or use #hashtags when you title your tape!
  • Post to Tumblr - post as many audios a day as you want
  • Post to Soundcloud
  • Email to Evernote (make sure you email as attachment)
  • Copy-paste your tape's URL into Messages to send audio via SMS

I have been on the receiving end of TinyVox and it was pretty neat. After reading our recent App for That, the developer sent me a TinyVox message suggesting it as a audio solution and asking me to take a look at the app. I'm intrigued.

TinyVox is available on the iPhone for Free. Screenshots after break.
