App Description

MATH 42 helps students from the 5th to the 12th grade with math — starting with homework to the preparation for tests — by (1) presenting intelligent recommendations, showing how to solve a problem, by (2) giving detailed, illustrated step by step solutions, and (3) a Training and Test Mode that allows you — thanks to statistics — to evaluate your progress and improve yourself. Problems and Solutions can be posted on Facebook or sent per eMail.

Mathematics and expensive tutoring are the Nr. 1 problem of parents and students. MATH 42 is the answer to this problem by basically eliminating the need for an expensive tutor. It is always close at hand and accessible thanks to its offline operation.

NEW: The entire functionality including the training exercises and tests are comprised in the purchase price.
