Here is a list of resources that can be used to enhance your learning in Math. Each app has a picture of the app (which is linked to the app website), the name of the app, the price of the app (and at which app store it is located), the web link for the app*, and finally a description of the app.
Here is a wiki space with a list of applications for each math subject. All pages include essential information about the app and an evaluation checklist for the app.

MyScript Calculator (Free – Apple) (Free – Android)
Easy, simple and intuitive, just write the mathematical expression on the screen then let MyScript technology perform its magic converting symbols and numbers to digital text and delivering the result in real time.
The same experience as writing on paper with the advantages of a digital device (Scratch-outs, results in real time)
MathFormulas ($0.99 Apple only)
Over 100 math formulas at high school level. The covered areas include algebra, geometry, calculus, trigonometry, probability and statistics. Most of the formulas come with examples for better understanding.
Isosceles (Free – Apple only)
Isosceles puts 16 geometry activities and over 50 practice questions at your disposal. • Solve construction problems and multiple choice questions to get the best preparation for both your geometry tests and the ACT/SAT. • Tutorials available in 4 categories: Intro to Geometry, Lines, Circles, and Triangles.
Exterior Angles (Free – Apple only)
Form a polygon by plotting points and reducing the figure until all exterior angles converge around one point. Using alegebraic and geometric applications, you will discover that the sum of the exterior angles of regular and nonregular convex polygons is always 360°.
Writing Geometric Proofs:
Trig Pro (Free – Apple) (Free – Android)
There are actually an infinite number of solutions to most inverse trigonometry problems, but your calculator probably only gives you one. Guess what. Your teacher probably wants you to explain all of the solutions. “Trig Pro” does that.
Precalculus and Calculus
CalcFTW (Free – Apple only)
Calculus FTW is unique in that we provide the basic steps to the solution, but if you need additional steps or more of an explanation on how to get from one step to the next the information is provided with the tap of a finger.
