01MinutePlusis a program made for children who begin to add two numbers to number20 and multiply two numbers in the range from 1 to20.The program's goal is to answer correctly the greatest number of additions or multiplications in 1 minute.Participants who achieve the greatest hits will put find their names on the top 10 list .

Enjoy the wonderful conceptual leaps of algebra, without getting bogged down by the tedium of traditional methods. Drag to rearrange, tap to simplify, and draw lines to eliminate identical terms.

I think this would be great with grade 7-9's or remedial math students to give them the feel for working with algebraic expressions and equations.

Have them do the process on the iPad, explain it in words (without reference to a specific question or numbers), and then write it on the page in a more conventional way so that someone without an iPad could follow the reasoning.

Graphing
Calculators

These can make it possible for students to use their handhelds instead of having to also remember to bring calculators to class.

~iPhone
~ Does everything the TI-83 does for $1 instead of $70+ : Statistics, Matrices and Vectors, Trigonometry, Complex Numbers, Algebra
~ See a short demo at http://youtu.be/BfaBspvs13I

Touch screen panning and zooming

Multi-colored graphs

Rectangular, polar, complex, and parametric coordinates

Zero, Min, and Max

Intersections

iLaserLevel allows you to find out inclination level without having to put target object and level together.
There is no need forcontact between object and iPhone.

I think this could be a great tool for having students learn practical uses of trig. Ask them to determine the height of a building or a tree. Help them explore the relationship between angle of inclination and angle of depression.Make a connection with a near-by trade school surveying class and have them do a series of challenges guided by older student mentors.

They will make money by selling people access to textbooks and some of the other features. Others can use your login information to read the books you've paid for on your account.

Classroom use: Put pdf's of your notes on a class website. Students can make their own user accounts and upload and annotate your notes.

(Be careful of Canadian privacy laws if students are using school iPads. If they have their own devices, you should provide other ways for them to accomplish this kind of task that doesn't require that they register in case some parents are concerned.)

There are 5 Java (J2ME) applications that are designed to help you learn intuitivelly about mathematical concepts in different fields using your mobile phone.

"helps students learn about fractions, decimals, and percents by ordering equivalent fractions, decimals, and percents on a number line.
The app features multiple levels where the player must drag circles with either a percent, decimal or fraction onto a number line in the correct sequence."

Ask the students to screen-capture the problem they start with, set the mobile device aside, and do group problem solving and illustrations to demonstrate the equivalencies. Have them check their solutions on their mobile devices.

Students are given different levels of math skills practice

Won the iPhoneFootPrint Excellence Award in Education
*Numbers go up to 1000 for addition and subtraction, and 20 for multiplication and division.
*Like Concentration with bubbles

"Drag, manipulate and animate visual mathematics."

Gives students the ability to interact with Geometers Sketchpad documents. It comes with several good sketches built-in, and many more are available online to import into it. If you have Sketchpad on the computer, you can create sketches and import those too!

Whiteboards on mobile devices

I think this is a great way to create a collaborative hands-on experience. Have one ipad attached to a computer and give a few out to groups. Team members must agree on the solution or steps in a problem before adding to the group board up on the screen

*for iDevices
*Lite version is Free
*collaborative -- but seems to be limited to 2 peers
*uses Wi-Fi or Bluetooth can record voice-over whiteboard tutorials and share them online

Each app is designed specifically for that device.
