Special Considerations/
Artifacts

Story Lines
(APP)
Like playing telephone
...we can start with a math problem or prompt instead of a story...

ex. "1/2 times 8"
Draw area model of problem
Interpret area model to write the problem

Repeat and take turn with groups of students
free
consider the 3 player game. enter representation like an equation
2nd person draws the table, 3rd person created the equation

Video Physics
(APP)

2.99
high school or end of 8th grade level graphing

Pick-a-path
(NCTM Illuminations)
(APP)
Addition of decimal values and metric unit conversions.
Level of difficulty can be selected
free
could be used for students who finish early or who need additional practice.

(APP)
Real time interactive whiteboard
free
Great to use with students to show work remotely to make thinking visible. for both teacher and student work.

NLVM

need laptop
Good for practicing and becoming familiar with using manipulatives
Teacher ipad is syncd to the whiteboard
some glitches ... can't get all ipads synced.

math-play.com
(WEBSITE)
interactive math game website for practice and play with partners

play against each other.

dragonbox
(APP)
dragonbox.edu
12+ age

Creative world where students can create avatar and the dragon grows into a different thing. Maybe math lab kids. It builds from concrete to abstract then symbolic understanding.

The professional iPad interactive whiteboard and screencast recorder with sophisticated tools for hand-drawn graphics and remote desktop control.
