Front Row

Front Row has free and premium levels of adaptive practice in reading and math. The area of math is the most developed part of Front Row.  Students take diagnostics within several focus areas. Work can then be assigned to meet the students levels and needs. In addition to the adaptive practice, there are inquiry based lessons, targeted practice, and fact fluency drills.  Additionally, worksheets can be printed for aligned with students’ needs for offline practice.  Students earn coins as they complete activities that allows them to go the “Piggy Store” to design their avatar.  What I love about this is the enticement to earn the coins, it takes a significant amount of work to get the “Piggy Store” to open, and there is a time limit for how long the student has access to the store with each visit.


ModMath is an iOS math designed with learners with dysgraphia and dyslexia in mind as it was created by parents of a child with dysgraphia and dyslexia.  It is like graph paper for the iPad, that integrates an on screen keypad to input equations for ease of alignment and legibility.  The app does not solve problems for the user, just provides a clean, well laid out space to work through equations.  Pages can be printed, shared via other apps, or emailed to hand in.  The developers recently used a Kickstarter campaign to fund the newly updated ModMath 2.0 with free and premium features.
