Mathway (best free educational Android apps for kids)
Without purchasing one of the available subscriptions, the free app Mathway serves as a very advanced calculator. If you're interested in paying for one of the subscriptions, however, it serves as a virtual tutor for some advanced math subjects: pre-algebra, algebra, trigonomety, precalculus, calculus and statistics. Also, if you're not careful, it could serve as one big cheat sheet.
What the app does is to break down the answer to each problem entered so the user can see how it is solved step-by-step. I don't know of any other app that does this. The subscriptions range from $9.99 to $59.99 for all subjects for a year, so it's not cheap.
We gave it four stars at smartappsforkids.com with this Bottom Line: When your children have moved on from memorization of basic math facts and needs support with math from Grade 4 through college, then look no further. This app has the answer to the most complex of problems free and thorough explanations for a fair price.
