My fifth grade math group has been using iPads to practice math facts. We specifically use Math Monsters and Math Balloons to practice multiplication facts. The kids are motivated and eager to practice their math facts using the iPads. After 8 minutes of practice we do a one minute test and graph our facts correct. We have seen a good bump in our progress from practicing with the iPads. Our next assignment will be for the students to learn how to make a 'Show Me'. They will use this app to record their mathematical thinking while solving a problem.
Thank you Jenison community members for making this motivating technology a reality in our school!
