There's an APP for That!

You can't imagine my surprise when I learned that there was an APP for 
Partial Sums Addition 
on my iPhone! Partial Sums is taught to third graders through the Everyday Mathematics to make adding 2-digit and 3-digit addition easier. To me and other adults who learned addition in the traditional method, it's definitely confusing! But once you get the hang of it you realize why they are being taught this way. 
So if you are helping your child with their Math homework and you are very confused, you should consider buying this app for your iPhone! It's definitely worth $3.99!

This app can be used to teach and study the partial sums addition method. The app is easy to use and it has an intuitive interactive interface with customizable colors and other settings. The user can solve random addition problems with small and large numbers. The number of digits in the numbers can be set.
