ab: From the text: The use of iPads in the classroom is growing. In the
2013‒14 school year, 57 percent of schools planned to invest in
iPads. This investment can benefit mathematics classrooms only if
teachers know which apps they can use to help students develop deeper
mathematical understanding. Although learning about and developing
facility with various apps is valuable for mathematics teachers, the
process can be difficult, overwhelming, and time-consuming. To get
started, we recommend one app, Dropbox, that can be used to share
materials within the classroom setting, and then we suggest three free,
easy-to-use mathematics apps: Sketchpad Explorer, Data Analysis, and
MathGraph.
