This new math game from Scholastic lets students practice addition and multiplication in a fun environment. Students can test both their speed as well as their accuracy.
Practice Math Worksheets on the iPad through Math Pentagon. Though the app is free, you do have to pay for the service. It definitely has a lot of potential.
This app supports math instruction by providing students with an opportunity to have virtual manipulatives similar to the blocks frequently used in classrooms.
"CCL4s provides an interface for entering observation data as well as access to all the Content Standards for Mathematics K-12 and the ISTE NETS.S. The collected observation data can be shared via email or with our unique built-in instant meeting. The graphs are very interactive and allow observers to merge different observations to compare and contrast different teachers or the same teacher over time. Using the Timeline feature, observers can track the observed Look-fors through time."
This free graphic calculator can also serve as a Scientific Calculator, has graphing capabilities, offers a unit converter, and can create a table of functions from values entered. It also has a set of references for formulas.
This is the math app that has been featured in numerous iPad commercials. It is a great product for arithmetic drills and includes problems for addition, subtraction, and multiplication.
Designed for 1st-2nd grade students, Murky Reef combines reading and math skills in the context of exploring a coral reef. This is the free version, though there is a more robust version available for $3.99. Students can review numbers, sight words, and vocabulary. There is some reporting built in.
I sent this link to Chris Harrow, a colleague who teaches math at The Westminster School in Atlanta. Here are his first impressions:
Cool = very smooth functionality on the iPad, you can do all the explorations in the most excellent iPad touchscreen environment, a very tactile approach to learning geometry.
Frustrating = you have to create the docs elsewhere, on first exploration, I don't see a way to do constructions directly in this app. If a kid gets a good idea that requires additional "stuff" on the construction, s/he may not be able to instantly follow up on intuition.
Any one else want to weigh in?
