10 Apps for Math Fluency - Edutopia

"In order for students to tackle the multi-step word problems they'll be asked to solve as early as elementary school, they need to have mastered their addition, subtraction and multiplication facts. By answering 4 + 12, 15 - 5, 9 x 7 and 18 / 3 quickly and accurately, students can focus on reading word problems to figure out what the question is asking them to do. There are tons of fun apps that help children build their math fluency through games and flashcards. Check out some of these fantastic math apps."

Jiyoon Jane Kim's curator insight,

Dream box teacher tools- provides interactive fraction games and worksheets for teachers and students. Fractions on a number line is an abstract representation that pushes students from conventional area/discrete model of fractions. “Through this process students face difficulty in recognising fractions as “number” because they are used to part-whole relationship” (Wong, 2013, p.15). Therefore it is useful to use this game as Goodwin (2008) suggests that “multimedia learning through the provision of dynamic, visual representations allows more ludic depiction of mathematical concepts” (p.103) that are often hard to teach just using the whiteboard.

This scoop focuses on this particular game “Ordering fractions on a number line 0-2.” This game builds on the previous game “equivalence” as the number line goes beyond 1 and improper fractions are introduced. This aligns with the syllabus “place halves, thirds and quarters on number lines that extend beyond 1” (NSW BOS, 2012, p.142).

Since this games involves improper fractions it is suitable as a whole class game using the IWB however, competent students are welcome to play the game independently. Another reason for a whole class approach is that the teacher can ask questions such as “why did you place that fraction on that line?” and allow students to “recognise and explain the relationship between the value of a unit fraction and its denominator (Communicating, Reasoning)” (NSW BOS, 2012, p.142). Considering the pedagogy behind teaching fractions (i.e. identifying and recognising the relationship between numerator and denominator) this resource should be used under the teacher’s control to a certain extent.

This allows teachers to introduce more technology resources in the classroom. Children can develop and build on existing digital skills.

Achieving the Early Learning Goals for Maths using 8 Great iPad Apps

"For this post, I will focus on early learning goals for maths and numbers in the UK Primary National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and the Early Years Foundation Stage for age 5 and under. If you read the framework documentation, you will find the early learning goals for maths and numbers are:

"Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.”

If I may add one goal to the ones I already stated, it’s the ability to write numbers and speak the words fluently."

iPads in Primary Education: Independent Learning using iPods in Maths (iPodagogy)

"Since the beginning of September we have been trying to maximise the use of 1:1 iPods in year 6 in all areas of curriculum. The potential of enhancing teaching and learning in mathematics through the use of this technology has been particularly interesting. We have been developing the creative use of a range of Apps to support progress, engage children and add relevance to maths teaching with positive outcomes (10 Practical ways to use Apps in Maths) We have also explored a wide range of maths specific Apps which have helped pupils mainly in the areas of number fact and tables recall. (Apps for Maths) Recently we have extended the use of the iPods to allow them to support independent learning, and play a central role in effective formative assessment."

Google's Databoard Lets You Create Awesome, Interactive Infographics

Google's Databoard lets you explore insights from Google research studies, share them with others, and create your own custom infographics.You need to give a presentation at your office or for a client. You need statistics to back up your data. What do you do? Go data mining? Go fishing for data? That can really be time consuming. This is on top of the time you need to prepare and create the presentation proper.What if there was an interactive tool that can easily search out industry-leading research, help create stories using the stats, and even create infographics using selected charts and graphs?Google has one now!...
