Algebra is a branch of mathematics that I particularly excelled in when I was in school. I safely assumed until just now that I knew all there was to know about basic algebra.
The first quiz of this app asked me to correctly define basic algebraic terms, and I was way off on most of them! I ended up learning something and discovered there was more to algebra than just going through the motions and acting robotically.
Mathtoons hits another home-run with their unique style of learning and simplicity. It's a great app for filling in blanks in education, reviewing basics and defining basic terms of the subject. Each wrong answer on the quiz is gently corrected, not by pointing to the right answer, but by re-defining the missing element and thus correcting why the student got it wrong in the first place.
I don't see how any student of mathematics can do without this very helpful supplement to their schooling.
