Steps to take before using Math Apps in Your Classroom

  1. Download and try out the app before you use it in the classroom. Make sure you’re familiar with the app and can help students use it.
  2. Use the app from your students’ perspective. What problems does it solve? What problems does the math app create you need to solve?
  3. What accompanying materials can you use in your classroom to extend on the lessons taught by this math app? Apps are a great compliment for learning but not a replacement for well-thought out lesson planning.
  4. After using the app, how can you students continue their learning? Will they continue use of the math app at home?

Asking yourself these questions when trying out new math apps for your classroom can help you asses whether apps are a good fit for your classroom needs and if the app will contribute to your class’ math learning.
