MathChat App Allows Students to Collaborate on Math Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

MathChat App Allows Students to Collaborate on Math Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Concepts Math | Scoop.it
“ MathChat is an interesting new iPad app that I discovered recently. As its name indicate, MathChat is an app that allows students to collaborate and work together on math problems. This collaboration takes place in group chats where members get to exchange messages, use pointers to show how to solve a problem, or draw and add arrows to provide illustration and guidance on Math concepts. This collaborative feature of MathChat resembles to a great extent the work Whiteboard apps do.”

Dennis Swender's curator insight, October 26, 2014 5:48 AM

Collaboration -- for the expansion of multiple learning opportunities.  Should students be encouraged to collaborate with others on tests and assignments?  Why is it that when students look up a word in a dictionary or consult a reliable reference source, that's OK, but if they consult a friend, that is sometimes considered cheating?  

Ken Zimmerman's curator insight, October 27, 2014 12:36 PM

A possible tool to use in Hybrid classes.

TurnOnCCMath.net!

Welcome to TurnOnCCMath.net! The GISMO research team at North Carolina State University has developed 18 learning trajectories that unpack the K-8 Common Core State Standards for Mathematics from the standpoint of student learning, and elaborate the underlying scientific research in mathematics education. The hexagon map illustrates these learning trajectories, standard by standard. Clicking on a hexagon or a trajectory takes you to detailed descriptors that articulate students' progression from prior knowledge and naïve conceptions to more sophisticated mathematical concepts and reasoning.

Looking For Real-World Math Problems? Try Google Earth! - MInd/Shift

Looking For Real-World Math Problems? Try Google Earth! - MInd/Shift | 21st Century Concepts Math | Scoop.it
ne of the most common questions math teachers hear from their students is, “why does this matter?” They are constantly trying to convince students that math is useful and could help them in their everyday lives. But it can be a tough sell. Word problems alone often feel contrived and students see right through them.

Thomas Petra has taught math at every level for more than 20 years and encountered dubious students at every grade level. That’s why he developed Real World Math, a free website with lessons based on Google Earth aimed at grades 5 – 10. “I was trying to show them actual applications of the math ideas that they see in the textbook,” Petra said.
