Math Paper - Doing Math on an iPad: An App for ALL Learners

Math Paper - Doing Math on an iPad: An App for ALL Learners | Digital Teaching, Learning and Classrooms | Scoop.it

"Math Paper is by far the best option I’ve seen for doing math work on the iPad! Math Paper won’t do calculations or graphs, but it provides all the tools needed to do everything from basic computation to complex algebra. Math Paper has been developed with the principles of UDL in mind, so it’s a tool that can be used effectively and independently by anyone, including individuals with motor challenges or cognitive processing issues. Accessibility and ease of use have been addressed successfully.

 

Math Paper cost:  $19.99.  Paul Hamilton notes in his blog that this is an exceptional app and is worth the cost.

Here is an app that gives students a maths workbook to use in class. I am wondering if it ever pops up as free on AppsGoneFree in order to test it. I am not sure it is worth the cost but might need to look into it.

Math vs Broccoli - Important Message on Math Education

The US is facing a STEM challenge, and math education is the top priority. It's time for curriculum publishers to step up and deliver.

 

Conceptua developed an important message in this video in that we need to change the way we teach math.  They are challenging publishers to deliver math curriculums that are designed to teach math to all learners. 

 

Thank you Conceptua for taking this bold step in math education!

What Teachers Really Think About Game Based Learning

What Teachers Really Think About Game Based Learning | Digital Teaching, Learning and Classrooms | Scoop.it

WeAreTeachers, an educational resource website, have released the results of a survey of 309 K–12 classroom teachers from public, private and religious schools across the country about their views on game based learning. We thought the results were very interesting, especially the statement ’81% of teachers feel students are more engaged when they are playing games’.
