1+1= iPad Math Apps for Teachers

Abstract

This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher was written by Dr. Joanne Healy, Sanna Turnbough and Mercedes Anderson.  The authors ask the question: Should teachers incorporate math applications (Apps) into their classrooms? If “yes”, how can this be done effectively? An abundance of math apps for the iPad are available, ten engaging apps, (five elementary and five secondary) have been reviewed. Descriptions of application options and attributes that teachers need to consider in making the right choice in App are included as well as a detailed list of pros and cons of use in the classroom or small groups. iPad accessibility and system preferences to control access and monitor student progress will be clarified. Relevant tips on how and when to integrate iPads into the classroom successfully are examined.
