Abstract

Mathematics apps support learning by providing an adjustable learning pace, difficulty level, content-based engaging activities and at times instant feedback. This paper summarizes an attempt to help teachers assess the usefulness of iPad apps for possible use in their classroom. Through a teacher grant middle school mathematics teachers were given iPads. Use of a rubric allowed teachers to evaluate each app across a number of dimensions, each addressing a different domain related to the implementation into a particular class and usefulness of the app to students.
