Math Fun Facts

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
(* Under iOS7, app works fine for iPhone, but has some quirks for iPad. App works fine for other iOS versions. An update is underway and should be available soon *)
Math Fun Facts are ideas that will change the way you think!
- students (high-school or beyond)
- fans of learning
Math is more than formulas or skills... it is a way of seeing the world through patterns, beauty, and creativity. And Math Fun Facts takes you on a tour!
Based on the author's popular Math Fun Facts website, each Fun Fact is a short article highlighting a cool mathematical idea... from puzzle to paradox, card shuffling to computation, mind-benders to magic, and more. This app contains 75 Fun Facts (and the full set of more than 200 Facts is available as an in-app upgrade).
Take them with you on a plane or train; it does not require an internet connection! Other features include:
- Easy, Medium, and Advanced Fun Facts
- Randomly browse, or search/sort by topic/level
- Rate, and organize your favorites!
- Fun Facts are extensively cross-linked
- A selection of "previews" from the Upgrade package appear each day
Thank you for your support of high-level mathematics content for iPod/iPad/iPhone! More to come!
Best dollar I ever spent.
As a 3rd year nuclear engineering student with a background in multivariable calculus and partial differential equations, I love this app. I have no background in abstract algebra, topology, combinatrics, nor advanced calculus with proofs. However, this app has sparked my interest in pursuing more math courses because these topics are so mind blowing. I never though that the theory behind numbers and subsets and cardinality could get so complicated and interesting.
This app presents a lot of information that anybody can understand conceptually. I have never written a review for an app before but I couldn't hold back on this one.
Nothing like it!
I'm a HS math teacher, and this app has inspired many discussions, test questions, and bonus problems. Also, helps to brush up on more advanced topics and theorems. Thank you, developers. Keep it up!
As a lifelong amateur math fan I figured this app would be fun. Correct. I assumed I would already know everything in it. Wrong. Many of these fun facts are new to me. Math is amazing.
