Cost:  99 cents

What does it promise?  A fun way to teach basic math principles to elementary-level students.

A nice feature is the profile option. Math Bingo saves player information with custom player profiles. Each player profile consists of a unique name and a fun cartoon avatar. The player profiles display total number of games played, total number of high scores achieved, and total number of Bingo Bugs collected. Players can play without creating a profile, although their progress will not be saved if they choose this option.

Can I use it in my classroom?  This is a great app to supplement regular math lessons.

All apps can be found in the iPad apps store under education.
