MathOwl for iPhone
"It's very colorful and eye catching. Definitely does what it says it should by helping prepare for children's math homework. Can't wait to help my son learn math with this app. :)" - Jennifer Maples
"It is very easy to navigate and use… The great part about it is that the math owl doesn’t just give answers. It makes the students work out the whole problem. The app even offers homework assistance. The students can input a math problem, and the math owl will help them work it out. Children with learning disabilities would find this app fun, entertaining, engaging, and helpful because of the colorfulness, large print, and the friendly owl." - Kimberley Mendoza

Q & A
What is MathOwl?
MathOwl for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is for your children to practice basic math problems. It contains a set of math workbooks for different grade levels, currently Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades. Each workbook contains math problems for that grade level. Each math problem is presented on a single page which can be solved step-by-step. There are hundreds and hundreds of addition and subtraction problems to solve in different workbook lessons. Single and multi-digit numbers, with and without regrouping, borrow or carry.
MathOwl teaches kids how to do math interactively as they learn how to carry and borrow while performing addition and subtraction. It isn't the typical multiple choice or flash card style of math app. It is more hands on than that. Workbooks can be practiced over and over again and keeps track of the progress. MathOwl has different expressions based on the kids' answers and is a fun character.
There is also a ‘homework helper’ where kids can enter their own problems and solve them, step-by-step.
