There is an app for everything, math edition!

Engadget and other news sources are reporting about this new app available for iPhones and Windows Phones that will help solve equations. The Android version is coming in 2015.

 Will this be an effective learning tool that shows students step-by-step how to figure out the answer to math problems, or, as critics fear, a tool to help students cheat?

What do you think? Take a look at the video below. More info about the app.

Say hola to our language resources!

Are you taking a language class and need some extra help?

Do you just want to learn a new language?

Your library has plenty of resources that can help!

Not only do we have books, eBooks, and flash cards, we also have our Rocket Languages database. Look at all the languages you can study, including American Sign Language.

If you haven't tried it before, click on the picture or one of the links to Rocket Languages to get started! If you are off-campus, you'll have to log in with your Northwest info (same info that you use for Canvas). You'll also have to create your own account when you get to Rocket Languages so that it can keep track of your progress.
