Math Apps

Just a few apps I have either used or found recently for Math…

Photo Measures:  Just read about this app and I am excited to use this in the coming year!  It allows students to take pictures of different objects and then the app will help them measure it and then they can label the type of angle it is!  Hands on and seems easy to use!

Oh No! Fractions:  This is a great app for fraction practice.  The free version really only lets them compare fractions, but I feel that is the most valuable anyway.  I teach 7th and 8th and they struggle to see which fraction is bigger than another.  If they are not sure, there is a visual component that they can use to compare and if they are wrong they can see why they got it wrong.  I have used it as a warm-up in class!


Questimate: Just found this and think it could be amazing!  An engaging way to practice estimation.  I know my students really struggle with estimating anything and this could be the perfect app to help them!

Dragon Box Algebra 5+: Just saw this and am intrigued.  Not sure it will work or if it is worth the cost ($6), but I wonder if it can help tech algebra without teaching algebra. Would be another great way for students to practice logical thinking that will help solving complex algebra problems.


July 7 – Favorite books as a child or adult:  As a kid my favorite book was The Giver, as a HS student I enjoyed reading The Jungle, The Scarlet Letter, To Kill a Mockingbird. As an adult, just out of college, I finally read the Harry Potter books and they are my passion!  I love them, probably a little obsessed! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing the apps. I’d love to see a demo of Photo Measure.

    Every once in a while I go back and read something from my high school or college days. Last summer, I reread To Kill a Mockingbird. Oh. My. Goodness. Amazing literature. It has been a really long time since I read Hawthorne. You’ve inspired me to pick up SL again. Thanks.
