Area app

I found this nice app called Area of Figures by Braining camp.  It is a great app to help students review or learn to find the area of rectangles, parallelograms, triangles, and circles.

Each topic comes with four sections.  The first is a lesson to introduce the material which is a nice lesson.  The Manipulative section allows the students to explore area for the shape.  The questions is simply a quiz to help the student discover how much they really understand of the material.  Finally there is a quiz section that has four levels.  The levels are actually four ways to check student knowledge and the student is unable to move on until the correct answer is entered.  I like the way this is designed and I plan to use it in my geometry class this next year.
