Teen Math Apps

For the most part, teens are beyond basic math drills and into more abstract concepts and operations. And at some point, it gets harder for many parents to help with homework. If your teen sometimes needs algebra assistance or geometry gems of wisdom, these apps might offer the boost they need. Since several can offer up answers, it's a good idea for parents to monitor to make sure the app isn't doing all the work.
