Synopsis

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.

  11. List of helpful applications
  12. Resources
  13. Different web links for various ICT tools for T&L are provided for different purposes.
  14. interesting website to try on (virtual manipulatives)
  15. Hands-on
  16. Sharing of resources for teaching of primary mathematics
  17. Introduction of new apps that I have not seen before
  18. The sharing of the applications that are useful for teaching and learning
  19. The range of ICT Tools for teaching of Mathematics

  26. Sharing of multiple useful tools 

What are the areas of improvement for the session?

  1. More time to try out the tools. Too many website given only 10 mins to try
  2. Nil
  3. Look at specific topics and how to use the apps to teach the topics
  4. -
  5. It can be shorter as teachers can go back to school to explore the different websites by themselves instead of doing during the workshop
  6. Nil
  7. Lessons on how to create apps for ipads.
  8. The tools can be shown according to different levels and topics.
  9. More time given for us to explore the apps
  10. More structured guidance and facilitators to go around to help
  11. Nil
  12. More in depth explanations
  13. -N.A-
  14. could made it more hands on by enabling the participants to really customise the app on our own :) 
  15. More up-to-date apps or sites which can be used on tablets.
  16. NIL
  17. Got lost during the process on the website to click
  18. NIL
  19. More hands-on, let the teachers explore and post the comments on their own. Some of the facilitators are going too fast before we could get to the page. Would be good if there are people around to help the participants. 
  20. Could provide more samples of how to use the apps
  21. Maybe it will be good to send the links earlier so that the participants can try first
  22. It's too fast. I am not good in ICT so I am lost throughout the course.
  23. apps to be more colourful as they are for primary school students
  24. Language used in Math lesson are important. Do check with MOE the exact words to used in the apps.
  25. Need to share more apps on iStore as many school and students are more familiar with iPads. 
  26. To show how some of the collaborative tools can be used in the classroom
