Math Galaxy 8th Grade Math is a high-quality, no-frills math practice system. After a quick text-based or video review of the skill, students can answer a selection of randomly-generated problems, both with words and numerals. The app is colorful and clear, providing review and practice for an incredibly wide array of skills. Skills are organized into groups and subgroups, making it easy to zero in on just the right skill at the right time.
This app is highly educational. It provides comprehensive review, drill and practice on all of the skills that 8th grade students will need in math, based on the Common Core Standards. Each skill includes a quick review of the basics in text form, and there are also more in-depth video lessons, as well. Once the quick review has been covered, students can access an infinite stream of practice problems that use randomly-generated numbers. Once a problem has been answered, the app provides the correct answer for comparison, or can provide a step-by-step survey of the solution, which is very helpful to students who are struggling or need more frequent review.
Math Galaxy 8th Grade does have a reward system built in to encourage students to do their best when answering problems. Correct answers to practice problems accumulate to earn “robots” that eventually translate into extra time to play the built-in game, “Labyrinth.” The game is not flashy, but it is fun for folks that enjoy maze-like challenges. It is set up so that students can use the game as a break once they have completed a number of practice problems.
This app is an excellent value at $4.99 in the App Store. It is comprehensive and accurate, and could easily supplement nearly any Common Core-based math curriculum with additional review and practice.
Math Galaxy 8th Grade is very child-friendly. There are no outside links, no in-app purchases, and no links to social media.
