APP Of The Week - iLiveMath Trains

Do you remember the joy of riding your first train? The excitement as you felt the whistle blow and the engineer call "All Aboard!"

Did you ever collect stamps as a child or as an adult? Categorizing all the train stamps on one page. Stamp collecting is a hobby which opens up teaching opportunities for many families around the world.

iLiveMath Trains introduces word problem concepts using speed, weight, and goods. The natural language engine also generates questions around the art of stamp collecting, trade, countries, and currency.

iHomeEducator has released a new educational app for K to 6th grade. iLiveMath Trains which includes over 60 photos of trains, educational links, and educational videos with a natural language word problem generator that creates an endless stream of questions to challenge and engage your students.

Thanks for the review.
We are busy updating all of our apps to support an external display for schools... see a quote below from one of our schools.

"We are always trying to find ways to get our students to use higher thinking skills to solve everyday problems in order to give them ownership to real life applications. We first purchased iLiveMath Ford Cars and really liked how it blends Math applications with history... We contacted iHomeEducator who worked with us to enhance their apps so that we can display the photograph and the word problems using our existing SMART board projectors. Now an entire classroom can benefit from the content and teachers are provided an answer key. My students love the iLiveMath Entomology app too. I would also like to say that iLiveMath apps provide a huge amount of content enriched vocabulary which has in turn extended a simple math lesson into several cross-curricular lessons. We have the entire iLiveMath series and look forward to more from iHomeEducator." - Richard Stevens, Principal, Kitzmiller Elementary, Kitzmiller, MD

Using the Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter the teacher can control the app as well as display the word problem and photograph on an external projector. The adapter does not mirror the app display but instead pushes the photo and word problem content to the external screen while the answer and formula is given to the teacher within a pop-up view on the device. At the end of the session the teacher can email the test problems and answers for future classroom grading and record keeping. Test results can also be posted to a public or private blog. The Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter is supported by the iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod touch (4th generation). All iLiveMath apps ported to 4.0 will support this new adapter.

We're happy to share the following on our iLiveMath apps...
