Teaching in depth with Apps


Often when it comes to using iPads in the classroom, many of us want to get the technology rolling but may not know where to begin.  This chart (credited) demonstrates Bloom's Taxonomy in an app realated way.

Mathematics Apps (using the iTunes store)

Algebra Touch (free edition) -

Have you forgotten most of your algebra? Algebra Touch refreshes your skills using techniques only possible on your iOS device.  Say you have x + 3 = 5. You can drag the 3 to the other side of the equation.  Enjoy the wonderful conceptual leaps of algebra, without getting bogged down by the tedium of traditional methods.  Drag to rearrange, tap to simplify, and draw lines to eliminate identical terms.  Easily switch between lessons and randomly-generated practice problems.  Create your own problems or edit current ones.
