Math: Multiplication table - Applications Android sur Google Play

Math: Multiplication table - Applications Android sur Google Play | Android for Education | Scoop.it

“Math: Multiplication table” is wonderful educational math game, which helps kids to learn multiplication table.  As a good math workout it’s also really useful for adults who want to train their brain. It helps to develop the speed of calculation and improve multiplication and division skills.

The game “Math: Multiplication table” consists of 11 levels based on modern methods of teaching multiplication. The game’s interface is similar to well-known Tetris. You should solve the problems, which look like cubes falling from the top of the playing field. With each level the problems become more complex and progress in the game depends on your calculation speed. Playing the game you can pass the way from preschooler to magician and become the master of mental arithmetic!

Ebook Converter - Applications Android sur Google Play

Ebook Converter - Applications Android sur Google Play | Android for Education | Scoop.it
Convert your files to Ebook formats! ePub, FB2, LIT, LRF, MOBI, PDB, PDF, TCR!

Ebook Converter allows you to convert almost all files to the below mentioned ebook formats! You can even change specific settings and select sometimes for what ebook reader the file is going to be used.

How can we convert almost every file on your phone? Well, the converting is accomplished by uploading your file to the cloud where it will be converted and downloaded back to your phone. This all occurs really fast and while the converting is being done you can just continue using your phone.

Features:
- Over 100 source formats are supported
- Convert to ePub (.epub), FB2 (.fb2), LIT (.lit), LRF (.lrf), MOBI (.mobi), PDB (.pdb), PDF (.pdf), TCR (.tcr)
- Use your own file manager application and select Ebook Converter to open. This will load the file automatically! 

 

I have used this App several times now and it is quick and works without a hitch. The question is why convert to ebook? Simple, an ebook is easier to read and keeps a bookmark. When you read alot of research documents like I do these features alone are worth their weight in gold. Plus, the ebook bookshelf is a nice way of browsing my files instead of trawling through document folders on my device.

 

5 stars for this one

"Everyone is talking about a digital curriculum free of those hard copy textbooks that have been a part of schooling since the advent of the one room schoolhouse. This is the first post in a series devoted to investigating resources that can open up a world of digital curricula. In the next post I will bring seven more amazing digital resources that just might replace what we know as the textbook...."

This article looks at the CK-12 Foudation, a non-profit organization who is helping to build open-content, web-based collaborative books.
