Your views are important to this research. Help us in the Tips research project to support teachers as they use iPads in education.
This week, our focus is on maths.
How do you use iPads to support teaching and learning in maths classes? Please leave us a comment sharing details of the maths apps you use, and a short descriptor of how you use them in your classroom.
Give us some guidelines about which grade levels will find the app or activity most useful.
Numbers for iPad is the Apple mobile version of Excel spreadsheet, enabling users to create and edit spreadsheets and data-entry forms (similar to Google Forms) on the iPad. This app will be useful for teachers and students, particularly in business and economics; but is probably best used for editing existing spreadsheets.
Files can be exported (via email) to Numbers for Mac, Microsoft Excel, or PDF; but can only be removed from the iPad via iTunes or WebDAV. SendToDropbox is useful too (via @samgliksman).
This presentation came to us via @DrLaPrairie on Twitter, and provides a fascinating insight into the educational applications of iPads in a secondary context. They were created by Cheryl Davis, from Acalanes Union High School District (USA).
