    Thank you, I saw that to in fact it is very cool for a visual learner. The creator wrote back and said it went up to Distribution/Factoring out. Now I have to figure out if that is basic algebra lol.
    Thank you

    It's not an iPad app but if you're not familiar with the Khan Academy (Khan Academy), you definitely owe it to yourself to check it out. Free of charge and an excellent source of math and science lessons. Give it a shot. I'm betting you'll become addicted.

    Try the Wolfram apps - they do apps from simple algebra to advanced calculus. It's a great tool...

    Thank you everyone for your advise! Love the tips plus the algebra touch! My son will also like the others he's going for a health environmentalist!
    Sorry for putting it in the wrong place.

    I should have checked the App Store before I said that the Khan Academy videos are available on the web but not as iPad apps. As it turns out, many of them (including Algebra I and II) are available as free iPad apps.

    And since virtually all of the Khan Academy videos are accessible via YouTube, that's another way to access them.

    I can't recommend these videos highly enough. There are over 2000 videos dealing with all sorts of subject matter. Short videos, easily digestible that focus on specific issues. Presented extremely well in a form that minimizes distractions by a gifted teacher.

    Just look for Khan Academy on YouTube or in the App Store.

    You're welcome. I've become something of a missionary for the Khan Academy videos. (My friends would say I'm a little obsessed with them.) As a former professor I find they fill a huge void for many, many students. Millions use them and the Gates Foundation is now funding the site.

    One of the biggest problems in teaching subjects like mathematics where individual building blocks are needed to make progress is that students may end up with a knowledge base that looks like swiss cheese with holes here and there. As they move on to more complex subject matter, those holes begin to matter more and more.

    The Khan Academy videos aim to fill in those holes in a self-paced easily accessible way. Taken together, they provide a comprehensive "course" in a subject. But individually, they enable a student to tailor the topics (and repeat them as needed) in an easily digestible format.

    Good Luck!
