It has been almost two years since my last post. Since then I have moved out of the classroom into administration. Last spring I received an iPad 2 and have been learning how to use it to enhance instruction. I have found several apps that would benefit math teachers and their students.Doodle Buddy-free with ads enabledHave you ever wanted to write out a solution to a problem and post to your website or email it? You can do just that with Doodle Buddy. This app turns the iPad into an individual whiteboard complete with markers and chalk. Work can be saved to the photo library.
To the left is an example of completing the square using the Doodle Buddy App.
Quick Graphs- free for both iPhone and iPadThere is a small fee to enable separate scaling of the x and y axes. This one is my favorite for graphing. The graphs are easy to scale and colorful. It is a much better picture than a graphing calculator display. Save the graph to the photo library and insert into tests or worksheets.
