Exploring Customisable Math Apps



Date and Time

25 Jan, 22 Mar, 3 May
1430 - 1730 hours
Mr Lawrence Wee Loo Kang


Learn how customisable Math Apps can engage students in activities to explore and learn mathematical concepts and skills in a fun way.
Participants will learn how Math Apps can be used in activity-based learning.

Content Outline

By the end of the session, the participants should be able to
1. Use the Math Apps to help students uncover abstract mathematical concepts or results
2. Customize Math Apps to meet students’ learning needs



Looking for interesting ideas to help your students explore and learn mathematical concepts and skills in a fun way? The Math Apps allow students to experiment, explore and construct meanings and understandings between concrete and abstract mathematical ideas. The workshop facilitators will also share their experiences using Math Apps for teaching & learning and how to customize the Math Apps to suit your students’ learning needs.
