Math app offers games, rewards

A new on-the-go iPad app, SuccessMaker Speed Games, from the education services and technology company Pearson, capitalizes on mobile technology to enable anytime and anywhere practice of basic skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

While kids continue to work to perfect their gaming skills during the dog days of summer, they can download SuccessMaker Speed Games and check math facts, create individual avatars, collect rewards, avoid penalties, and compete against other users through a leader board.

Pearson is offering the app for free until September 30th.
