Hey Math Teachers! Have any of you tried any of these apps? If so, let me know what you think!

An interesting showcase of a middle school math class trying to teach math as you would a foreign language… There are some techniques I know our math teacher, Mr. Scruton uses- blogging, getting the students to make videos of how to solve certain equations. Has anyone else used the KWHL chart?
I also appreciate some of the teacher feedback on this exercise- clearly there is some getting used to this new process with the students…
The conversation about visible thinking in Math started with one of our teachers at Graded, The American School of São Paulo, Adam Hancock, wanting to know how he could incorporate having students’…

I found this article below via a tweet yesterday. They have grouped the apps by subject- though many of them we already know, there were a few intriguing apps I had not heard of in every discipline. What makes this list even better is that it is created by Quebecers for Quebecers and with our school curriculum in mind.
Check it out and let me know what you think!

Although this article is about the experience of a second grade teacher, I think the idea of melding programming language with geometry instruction brilliant. It made me wonder if coding could be applied in anyway to the secondary curriculum?
Would love to hear your comments!

The article below made me think of a conversation I had the other day with Mr. Math and Multi media about how it was going with his flipped classroom. He was telling me that since he required the students to take notes on the videos they must watch at home, it has been way more successful. He then took it a step further and not only required his students to take notes, but to post them to their math blogs.
All the students in his class (and now all of you) can benefit from their notes. The fact that they are public I suspect also contributes to the quality. I have made a pinterest board of all their blogs so you can peruse a sampling of their notes, or click on an individual pin to go their blog.
This is a great example of how you can leverage the use of the iPad (or any device) in the class, from watching the videos or presentations on the iPad, to making notes, to posting them on a blog. All this can be done with great ease on one device.
Below is an article on another way one can use the iPad and collaborative tools in order to create a class pool of notes.
Alan November elevated the “Official Scribe” as one of the roles that empower student learners. I see the role of the scribe as follows: The official scribe plays an important role in the classroom…
