This is an application based on the drill-and-practice instructional strategy. Similar to memorization, such a strategy presents the tasks to be completed repetitively to build up the foundation skills for more meaningful learning in the future.
This application provides exercises covering basic mathematical skills like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The exercises are targeted for children under 12 years, with varying degrees of difficulty depending on their age.

This is one of my first iPhone OS applications for the iPhone 3G and iPod touch devices. It is a Memory game. One of the ways to improve your memory is to regularly engage in activities focused on the sensory and short-term memory.
Sensory memory allows an individual to look at an object or item and thereafter remember what it looks like with just a brief moment of observation. Short-term memory goes longer, retention from a few seconds to possibly as long as a minute.
The main aim of this application it to help trigger and exercise your sensory and short-term memory capacities. Your objective is to identify, remember and match pairs of pictures. There are many different pictures included in this application to fully stimulate your memory. Reveal all the pictures in the smallest number of moves or in the shortest amount of time.
