Making Math Thinking Visible with iPads

Making Math Thinking Visible with iPads

My students create many different artifacts, but the most meaningful are those in which my students show their learning and their thinking in ways that are far beyond what a worksheet could do.  When they make a video or screencast of what they have learned, I can hear and see their thinking. I can also hear confidence or hesitation, self-corrections or errors in perception. Consider these math examples produced by my students."

 

John Pearce's insight:

Simple, clear examples of how iDevices can be used by students to demonstrate learning, (there's nothing better that giving students voice).

Thinking Blocks - Model and Solve Math Word Problems

Thinking Blocks - Model and Solve Math Word Problems | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
Learn how to model and solve math word problems. Ideal for students in grades 1 to 6.
John Pearce's insight:

Though the process is very linear and may need someone to initially lead a student through how to use this app I can see that for a number of students this would be a very valuable tool to have because of the interactive manner in which the content is presented.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 20, 2014 1:54 AM

These apps are all useful for maths classrooms. Some of them are primary-school-ish, but the author has put effort into finding apps that actually build maths skills, rather than drill-and-practice apps. I particularly like the MyScript MathPad and Calculator - two apps that turn your handwriting into clear mathematical equations. 

BC's curator insight, January 24, 9:42 AM

In case you want to do some extra maths to improve your ability :)

This list is very well thought out - definitely some good apps here. I liked how he linked to explain Everything as a good app to start with in the maths classroom. All students at Prendiville have this app, and can create a neat video just by taking a photo of an equation and then explaining how they would solve it.
