Finding out just how much things cost is a right of passage that all teenagers must go through as they transition into adulthood. Math Widgets IV help students understand personal finances by presenting four typical scenarios that involve savings accounts, automobile purchases, home purchases and using credit cards.
Cartoon characters pop up while using the app in order to set up a scenario involving personal financial decisions.
Rather than performing difficult calculations, the app is more about deciding which numbers should be used in the formulas. Help screens give some background information for the various calculations.
Numbers are entered into fields. Calculations for missing values are performed by moving the target to the desired field.
Tapping the ‘info’ button reveals the formula used for the target calculation.
