Apps for teaching, not just reviewing. (English)
Teach. Child. Math. 21, No. 7, 438-441 (2015).
From the text: Because we were interested in an app that we could use to teach ‒ not just review ‒ multiplication and could not find one, we decided to develop our own. The result is Fruit Plate Math, a free iPad app. The plates and fruits illustrate the equal-size-groups model of multiplication. Students can see groups as fruits on a plate or as fruits arranged in an array. The app also shows four different ways of representing the number of fruits, as a “groups of" statement, as a multiplication expression, as the total number of fruits, and as a repeated addition expression.
