Motion Math: Wings
Practice mental multiplying and estimation with Motion Math: Wings! This fun math game helps children ages 4 and up develop a conceptual understanding using six different visual forms. It's simple to play – you just tilt your bird to the bigger number.

IBooks
iBooks is an amazing way to download and read books. iBooks includes the iBookstore, where you can download the latest bestselling books or your favorite classics – day or night. Browse your library on a beautiful bookshelf, tap a book to open it, flip through pages with a swipe or a tap, and bookmark or add notes to your favorite passages.

Adobe Reader
This app allows you to have PDF files and write on them. Scholars can download the PDFs from a wiki. They can then answer questions and mark on it themselves. You can take screenshots of these PDFs and save them as pictures, by holding down both the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" (on/off) buttons of your IPad.
