Frederick Feraco, an NYC science teacher, and IOS developer has 9 titles in the app store to help students prep for their regents and final exams. These apps are all part of his "Buddy" series and all of the educational "Buddy" apps consist of lessons, videos, interactive quizzes, daily news feeds and flash cards. They are broken into topics: chemistry, biology, physics, earth science, environmental science, global history, US history, integrated algebra, geometry, and health education. Some of the regents' prep apps consist of question banks with NYS regents questions from past exams. There are also NYS regents exams with answer keys on each exam, as well. The daily news feeds also vary among each app. The news feeds are specific to each subject. All of the apps are being updated daily to ensure the best possible product.
We asked high school honor students, in a study group, to take a look and let us know what they thought. They were very enthusiastic and wanted to share the apps with their past and previous instructors. We are in the process of turning our local high school students on to these great apps! Hopefully, this post will help get the word out that these apps cover a vast amount of curriculum and could help any advanced junior high students, high schoolers, homeschoolers, or even college students.
Frederick developed these apps to help all students with studying, and to make studying as convenient as possible. He has taught biology, physics, chemistry, environmental science, anatomy and physiology, robotics, engineering, and biotechnology. He has his masters in secondary education and continues to further his education at Columbia University for Computer Science classes. Let's help him with his dream to spread this knowledge beyond the four walls of his classroom. Take a look below:
