School Zone Publishing Company, a market leader in award-winning children’s educational products, is among the first companies to offer downloadable applications for Apple’s latest revolutionary product, the iPad tablet. The award-winning company joins a select number of software developers nationwide in meeting the tough deadline in time for the iPad’s launch on April 3, 2010.

 

The applications are a new twist on School Zone’s already successful flash cards and workbooks for children. Jonathan Hoffman, president and CEO of School Zone Publishing believes this software is a great way for parents to leverage technology to their advantage.

 

“Children are about to experience a whole new way of learning. The iPad brings our educational software to an entirely different level, giving children the ability to manipulate digital material with the touch of a finger,” Hoffman said. “This can transform difficult concepts – such as fractions, time or money – into a delightful opportunity to explore. Children will be mesmerized, and parents will love the results.”

 

School Zone’s new titles for the iPad include:

 

On-Track Time, Money, and Fractions – $9.99

 

Ages: 6-7, Grades 1-2

 

Designed for first and second graders, this application helps build the necessary skills for understanding time, money, and fractions with fun, hands-on exercises.  Children practice adding coins, counting coins, knowing coin values, telling time, setting clocks and more. All the skills are presented in a delightful mix of exercises and enhanced with games, animations and “silly” sound effects. Each exercise has audio guidance, instant grading, positive reinforcement, and ways to track your child’s progress.

 

Flash Action Multiplication & Division – $9.99

 

Ages: 8+, Grades 3-4

 

Created for third and fourth graders, this application is like flash cards for children with a high-tech twist. Your child can practice problems against the clock, challenge another player to a game of fast facts, or test their own skills for speed and accuracy. Complete with instant grading, reward animations, and an interactive multiplication/division chart, this game will have your child ready for standardized school testing in a flash!

 

Flash Action Addition & Subtraction – $9.99

Ages: 6+, Grades: 1-2

 

Considered the state-of-the-art take on flash cards, this program is perfect for learning the addition and subtraction skills your child needs for school via audio responses, multi-player gaming, testing, reward animation, and more. This program is smart; it will adjust the level of difficulty based on the child’s performance. If your child has a problem that shows up repeatedly, there is a handy table they can refer to for the correct answer.

 

Square Off – Free

 

Ages: 4+, Grades: Preschool+

 

Specifically designed to help with cognitive development, spatial reasoning, and problem solving skills, the goal of this game is to complete the most squares. Players take turns placing a line between adjacent dots by touching the space between the dots. The game continues until all the squares are won, and the person with the most squares wins the game. An animation rewards children when they win the game.

 

Memory Match Game – $0.99

 

Ages: 4+, Grades: Preschool+

 

This game is fun for all ages and helps with cognitive development, spatial reasoning, memory, problem solving skills, attention/focus, and language/vocabulary. Children play against a built-in opponent by touching on two cards, which flip to show the pictures on the front side of the cards. If the two pictures match, then the player wins the pair and plays again, continuing until the last pair has been matched. There is an added feature of a mystery picture concealed behind the game board. When a match is made, a part of the picture is uncovered. When the game is finished, the whole picture is revealed.

 

Some children’s games are more than just fun and provide a healthy dose of learning – You can trust that all of School Zone’s apps pack a learning punch! But don’t just take our word for it, try them out yourself!

Anyone ever got a ticket for speeding in a school zone?

I was going 45 in a 25 mph school zone should I plea nolo contendre ? If I plea nolo contendre will get go on my driving record and make my insurance go up? I live in Georgia and wanted to know if someone know anything about this situation to email me . I wanted to also know is any driving safety courses I can take to have the citation dismissed.?
you can’t see the school zone sign to know what time to go what speed . I do care about the lives of the kids but it was a busy traffic street and no car was going 25 mph anyways I wasn’t speeding me and a guy in truck pulled over so how does he know it was me that was speeding he just go who ever stopped.

I was once given a ticket for going five miles over in a school zone (the exit to the school zone was not clearly marked on the road, and I began speeding up as I believed I was exiting the school zone). In Texas, you are allowed to take defensive driving for the dismisal of a ticket (even speeding in a school zone, such as my ticket). And although it’s a tedious way to spend an afternoon, I’d highly recommend defensive driving if it’s an option, because you can actually use the voucher to also get a discount on your auto insurance – I checked this with the court, the defensive driving instructor and my insurance agency, it’s completely legit!
