FOUR GREAT IOS MATH APPS

The Math Learning Center offers four great iOS apps for your students that use discovery learning and are free. The Geoboard is a tool for exploring a variety of mathematical topics introduced in the elementary and middle grades. Learners stretch bands around pegs to form line segments and polygons and make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, fractions, and more.

 

The Number Rack features rows of movable, colored beads that encourage learners to think in groups of fives and tens, helping them to explore and discover a variety of addition and subtraction strategies.

 

Number Pieces Basic helps students develop a deeper understanding of place value while building their computation skills with multi-digit numbers. Students can use the number pieces to represent multi-digit numbers, count, regroup, add, and subtract. The drawing tools allow students to label representations and show their understanding. There is also a more advanced version of this same app, Number Pieces, that has additional features for representing larger numbers and multiplication and division concepts.

Enjoy!
