"How can I use one iPad effectively in the classroom?"
"How can I use the iPads for more than just games?"
Since those questions seem to come up quite frequently, I have begun searching ways to use the iPads for more than just a glorified math practice sheet. How can the students use reference apps to apply mathematical knowledge to real world situations?
In my search for better app usage, I have come across some apps that are ideal for teaching and practicing place value concepts.
This is the second set of iPad Task Cards I have developed for math. This document includes 7 different tasks that students can explore in order to see how numbers exist the world around us. All of these activities integrate Math with either Science, Social Studies or both.
The task cards in this packet focus on the following Common Core Content Standards and Standards for Mathematical Practice:
[4-NBT2] Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
[4-NBT3] Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
[4-NBT4] Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
MP1: Make sense of problems and preserver in doing them.
MP2: Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
MP3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
