mVPM makes mineralogy to be easier to examine a thin section and to understand the characteristic properties for each mineral without a petrographic microscope, which is known to be very expensive. It is mainly addressed to students as a guide in individual or supervised laboratory work.
✔ A clean and fast application;
✔ Supports phones and tablets;
✔ Browse rocks which contain a classification for volcanic and plutonic rocks
✔ Interactive QAPF diagrams (volcanic and plutonic rocks)

In the information age of today education, learning and teaching is changing fast. The technology that is being used in and outside of the classroom is everywhere. Almost every student has a cell phone with access to the Internet. Even with out Internet access there are educational applications for iPhone, iPad and so on. The methods for teaching students and special needs students are expanding. Some schools are going all iPad. Meaning all students will have iPads with digital textbooks and new learning tools.
For students these types of applications can be very useful. The student who cannot focus on one type of learning at a time can flip back and fourth through the app to stay focused. The student who is an extremely visual learner will be attracted to the devices colorful screen of pictures in the lesson. The student who has trouble writing notes or preparing them self for a test can simply open up previous lessons and practice on the interactive quizzes of the apps. The student who is a auditory learner can listen to nature sounds while reviewing topics or watch videos related to each topic. The very high performing student can find interesting topic related daily news and summarize it for the class. All of these options can be utilized through one educational app.
Earth Science Regents Buddy is the ultimate tool for learning Earth Science. This app was designed by a teacher who has used all possible multimedia resources in the classroom for teaching regents curriculum. Earth Science Regents Buddy is not only an app for learning Earth Science, but also an app for teachers. The features of this app makes studying extremely convenient.
The features of this app include everything you need to prepare for the Earth science regents exam and learn Earth Science.
1. This app includes attractive lessons on all topics below.
2. Earth Science Regents interactive Fun quizzes by topic (with real regents questions)
3. Daily Earth Science and science news updates.
4. Regents exams with the key.
5. Fun videos from youtube.
6. Flash cards by topic.
The topics covered are:
A major understandings, skills, and real-world applications drawn from the following 8 subject areas:
1. Size, Shape, and Composition of Earth
3. Rocks and Minerals
4. Weathering, Erosion, Deposition, and Landforms

You can browse plants by families, genus, search by common name or scientific name, and state. The detail species page include major characters and distribute map, and linked to USDA web site for detail information.
You can use it in a field trip, write a note about a plant, take a photo using the phone camera, select a photo from the phone. It is all at your finger tip.
You can save the plant locations and later view all of them on a map.
You can also group them, and add various species into different groups for easy access.
Note: Data are from USDA plant database (2006), with 541 families, about 5000 genea, and 50,000 species. If have other data sources, please let me know. We can make it better. I am a plant lover too!
