Math Inquiry Using iPads and iDevices

This session explores apps that can be used to support inquiry activities in Junior and Intermediate level math. Together, participants explore and discuss apps that allow for data collection, graphing relationships, documenting findings, manipulating geometrical shapes, trying out multiple scenarios and sharing and communicating about learning.  While this session primarily focuses on iPads and Junior/Intermediate (grades 6-10), references will be made to comparable iPod Touch and iPhone apps whenever possible.
