Maths Workshops

Teaching with Maths Apps

There are loads of Maths apps available, mostly as games for independent maintenance. But there are also a few that can be used in teaching sessions.

One example is 'Thinking Blocks'. There are several apps in the series and they are all free. external image Screen+Shot+2014-07-25+at+2.35.31+pm.png

All of the Apps present problems to be solved and the solving of them is done in several parts. Mirror the app to a TV or a projector and use it in a group lesson. When I demo this I like students to have their maths books or a small whiteboard, plus a device i.e. an iPad where they can use other apps to solve/record the problems and their learning.
