Tried It Tuesday: Math Apps!

I'm back to join in with Holly's great linky: Tried It Tuesday!

Photobucket

At school, I do more than just try out new apps. I promise! Even though it probably doesn't seem that way with each passing week of this linky. I couldn't help, but want to share a few more apps with you this week.

During center rotations on Fridays try to incorporate review over the topic from the week and review for the basic operations. Part of specific learning disabilities is the fact that material has to be worked with and reviewed often for it to "stick" so that's what we do.

The last month or so, I've started downloading and incorporating some new free apps into my center rotations. Zombie Math, Sushi Monster, & Wings.

Zombie Math
The "world" (background) changes depending on which operation your using

You can see that this student had a correct answer from the human running off to the side. 
Zombie Math is my student's absolute favorite! There are levels for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Basically, you have zombies coming at you and above their head is a math problem. When you type the correct answer in the Zombie is zapped and becomes a human once again. What I really like is that when the play is paused, you can still see the problems. This works very well for a couple of my students who get very stressed with time limits. They are able to work out problems on their whiteboards and answer the problem on the game without consequences. 

Sushi Monster


Sushi Monster is an app that only works on addition and multiplication. You have to pick plates that equal the number that the monster is wearing around it's neck. You need to feed the monster to keep him happy. There are several levels of difficulty, and the monster in the middle changes with each level of difficulty too.

Wings


Wings is a fun app for multiplication. We haven't used this app much yet, just downloaded it the other ay for the last few minutes of class. The students liked that they could move their iPad around to "swoop" and get the numbers.

  5. Math Zombies is great.

    Have you tried Operation Math or Numbers League? Those are two of the top one that I use with my kids.
