iPads & an Internal Network

Apple TV

Wireless network without the Internet

Do away with your Interactive Whiteboard! You can run a class set of iPads so that, at any time, a student can put up what they are working on, on the projector. If you only have one iPad, you can walk around the room free of cables and hand your iPad over to a student and they can interact with what is on the projector. Here is how you set up an internal wireless network that doesn’t need the Internet.

The Center for Algebraic Thinking has a number of apps on iTunes and in development with the purpose of helping students develop concepts in algebra and/or address misconceptions. How are these tools working for you? Do they increase students’ conceptual understanding of algebraic topics? Do the apps function in the way that you would want them to? Please join in the conversation.

What is your experience with students’ algebraic thinking?

Monday, September 5, 2011

At the Center for Algebraic Thinking we are most interested in how students think when doing algebra. What ways do they think about algebraic concepts? What misconceptions do they have? What unique ways of understanding do they have? What facilitates students overcoming conceptual barriers? We share research on these issues in the Encyclopedia of Algebraic Thinking and hope that you will contribute your experiences as well.
