The 70 Best Apps For Teachers And Students - Edudemic

The 70 Best Apps For Teachers And Students - Edudemic | Making math meaningful! | Scoop.it
There are quite a few apps you should know about. We went through and compiled dozens of the best apps for teachers who don't have time to do so themselves!
Laura Williams's insight:

We all know that our students love technology! Whether is an ipad, iphone, or any smartphone, students love to play using their apps! Teachers can hand out a list of apps to parents so that students can play fun math games or engage in math activities at home. I know of a few teachers that handed out a list of apps to parents at parent teacher conferences for parents who were concerned that their children did not have enough practice at home.

Teaching Math with Picture Books, Part 2 | Scholastic.com | Making math meaningful! | Scoop.it
Here's my hard-to-pare list of effective, clever, and just-plain-fun math picture books. I’m going to share some of my more unusual favorites with you. Which picture books do you like to use to teach math?
Laura Williams's insight:

We can integrate story books with math! Here are several books that make math connections, and can be used to make math class interesting. A great way to engage students is to use stories that they enjoy, or stories that they may not have read yet.

Julia Lyles's curator insight, December 16, 2013 12:04 PM

Pairing math and reading is a great way to engage students and integrate two subjects. It makes math meaningful to students and gives them another way to look at the subject. For those students who are intimidated by math it can help them to feel more comfortable with it. With the common core it is important to intergrate subjects. As a future teacher I am constantly looking for ways to do this and this is a great way!

Laura Williams's insight:

The floor! A tool in every school that can be used to teach a variety of math threads. Geometry, perimeter, area, and more. The squares on the floor at school are something that my students look at constantly because they follow the patterns on the floor as they walk in the hallway. What a perfect connection to math.

Laura Williams's insight:

Excellent example for teaching 5th grade math. How to teach math using a meaningful task/problem.... How can we use everyday situations to make math meaningful? Construction, gardens, home design, measurement, baking, etc. The possibilitites are endless! We need to make real life connections to the curriculum content so that students can use what they learn in real life situations.
