iPad Math Apps Recommended by Forest Class

During our small group math we are exploring addition and subtraction. It is important for students to have automaticity of basic addition and subtraction facts. There are several iPad apps that will inspire students to practice those facts. 

During our Media/Tech time today students tried out different math apps on the iPad. Here are a few of their favorites: 
  • Motion Math
  • Math Bingo
  • Zoom
  • SumsStacker
  • Math Magic
  • Math Ball
  • Balloon Pop
"Motion Math is awesome!" according Anton and Mateo. Motion Math gives students practice identifying fractions and decimals.

"Math Bingo is fun because you collect bingo bugs," Ryan said when asked about his favorite app. This app allows students to practice basic facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division, while trying to achieve five in a row.
