2 enterprising 7th graders from Chicago, Sam Kaplan and Louis Harboe, recently completed a Math-centric iPhone app called Mathmaster that is now available for download on iTunes.
The Chicago Sun Times reports:
The Mathmasteris pretty straightforward. For 99 cents per download, the application is marketed to parents as a fun tool to get their children more enthusiastic about things like square roots and multiplication tables. The application took about a month to develop and then a week to get approved by Apple’ s App Store. The two hope to launch a second, quirkier advertising-based application around their site sipthat drink.com in the coming months.
“Our goal was to get approved by the app store, sell a bunch of copies and make more apps,” said Kaplan, who in recent years completed an advanced placement computer science course and served as a keynote speaker at the National American Council for Online Learning.
Damn, and he’s not even out of middle school yet.
