iPad Word Problems - Solve and Explain with the free app Educreations on the iPad.
Encourage students to solve and explain word problems by integrating this free iPad app into math! Students will use the app to solve ANY word problem using the P.A.U.S.E. strategy to read the P
roblem, find out and box what the question is A
nderline key words, S
how work, and E
xplain in words using the in-app
audio recorder. Makes a great companion to word problem task cards and constructed or open-ended multi-step word problems in most math programs.
Can be used to meet the needs of Common Core standards in grades K-5 for all standards in the Operations and Algebraic Thinking Domain.
You supply the problems, students then take a picture of the problem and insert it into the app. Included directions guide students to annotate using the app's colored markers, text boxes, and audio recording feature. Great prep for standardized tests, especially those on the computer like PARCC and SBAC.
Packet includes everything your students need to use the app independently:
★ 1 ready reference sheets - a one page basic outline of controls to display at the center or project for the whole class to use.
★ 3 pages of step-by-step visual directions showing students how to take a picture of the word problem, open the picture in the app, and annotate the problem using the P.A.U.S.E. strategy.
★ 3 center signs reminding students of the word problem strategy.
★ 1 rubric to assess student work.
Links to free word problems online are included in the app.

Since my products all utilize free web and app resources, there may be rare times that the technology does not work as planned, which may be out of my control. Please be sure to message me in the Q&A section so I can assist you before leaving feedback. I use all of the apps that I base my packets on frequently and will update products as the apps themselves update.
