I am a seventh-grade Math teacher, and I am very interested in fixing iPad apps for use in my class. I very much liked Episode 58 on accessibility apps, but it reminded me that most of the education apps are for elementary-school-aged people.
I wanted to write to you to point out the app Algebra Touch which I have just discovered this summer. I used it in a summer program for students who want to get a look at next year's class, and it was a real hit. I like it so much that I use it as a game, just playing around solving equations using it.
I also want to point out that the developer has a wonderful feedback system in place. I wrote to him with a suggestion, and he wrote back the next day.
