|3||Hands-On Math Graph Cubes||Hands-On Math Graph Cubes simulates the use of a set of cubes to build bar graphs. While using the cubes students are given feedback so that they can see logical relationships. Visualization is an effective way to help students understand mathematical reasoning and logic. A benefit derived from using the Graph Cubes is that the cubes can be easily manipulated and therefore good problem solving strategies spontaneously evolve. The concepts studied in this curriculum are the foundations of mathematical development especially in areas that are a part of the data analysis, probability and discrete mathematics curriculum strand. The app proivdes an interactive Playground where graphs and tables can be created and explored. Student interaction with the device is augmented by the artificially intelligent feedback provided by the software. The instructional approaches that result from creating an open-ended area for free exloration and discovery are exciting. On the Playground students manipulate a supply of virtual cubes to create graphs representing data collected through surveys. When using Graph Cubes simple gestures are used to drag and drop blocks, placing them in columns to build bar graphs. The author and designer coined the term, “artificially intelligent math manipulative” to describe how using the Hands-On Math apps differs from the concrete manipulative devices traditionally used in classrooms. For example, this appprovides intelligent mathematical feedback as the student manipulates the cubes. Immediately associating feedback with a behavior is an effective way to reinforce behavior and facilitate learning. Hands-On Math Graph Cubes focuses on these curriculum areas: Collecting, Organizing, and Describing Data Based on Real-life Situations Students may be expected to demonstrate such skills as: • Analyze and describe data in terms of absolute or relative frequency of occurrence, range (highest/lowest), etc. • Summarize information and relationships revealed by a graph. • Add new data to a given chart, graph, or set of organized data. • Extrapolate from obvious trends revealed by graphs in order to make predictions. Using Graph Cubes students become involved in constructing, reading, and interpreting data in charts, graphs, tables, etc. What students should know and be able to do includes: • Obtain information from a bar graph by reading a graph to accurately to answer a question. • Analyze, interpret, or draw conclusions based on data given in a bar graph. • Match a graph to a described situation • Match a data set to a graph and a graph to a data set (including matching data presented in a table/chart with a corresponding bar graph) • Plot data onto a bar graph when the axes labels and scales have already been provided • Draw a bar graph showing data given in a chart/, table or words Formulating and solving problems that involve the use of data. What students should know and be able to do includes: • Generate questions that can be answered by collecting and analyzing data. • Collect data to answer survey questions. (i.e., What is your favorite sport?) • Solve problems using data from tables and graphs. • Solve problems involving simple deductive reasoning. (e.g., "How many students chose 'dog' as their favorite pet?)||--||$2.99||View in iTunes|

|5||Saving with Piggy||Give your child a jump start on their financial literacy! Saving with Piggy is a educational game that helps young children (age 2 to 5) learn about coins by feeding piggy (aka, putting coins in the piggy bank). The game features Piggy, a lovable animated piggy bank that needs help saving coins. Through four levels of play, your child can: * learn the visually appearance of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. * learn the relative value of the coins (which is worth more or less). * learn the monetary value of each coin (i.e., a quarter is worth 25 cents). * learn the process of saving money. Once your child masters the four levels of the game, challenge them to play the endless mode and save as much money as possible to help reinforce the concepts learned in the game. The game is 100% free-to-play (with no in-app purchases). The game is developed by the Games for Entertainment and Learning (GEL) Lab at Michigan State University and supported by the Michigan State University Federal Credit Union.||--||Free||View in iTunes|
|6||MathTappers: Find Sums||MathTappers: Find Sums – learn basic facts for addition and subtraction Version 2.0 Description MathTappers: Find Sums is a simple game designed to help learners to make sense of addition (and subtraction), and then to support them in developing accuracy and improving their speed. Please go to MathTappers.com for additional information on all of our apps. For Parents: There are two modes provided to support your child as they play the game. The first mode is designed for younger learners and uses a picture of a grid in which apples are placed and both apples and blank spaces can easily be counted. The goal is to choose a pair of numbers that cause all of the un-shaded spaces to be filled with apples. The second mode uses a symbolic part-part-whole model designed to help older learners to efficiently and accurately recognize addition and subtraction facts. In this mode the goal is to pick two numbers that when placed in the top spaces add together to equal the value in the bottom space. The focus should always be on sense-making and accuracy before speed. Ask your child to explain how they know what the other number should be and what strategies they are using. Remember that this game is not intended to replace instruction – but rather to supplement it with a self-paced activity to support mastery and fluency. Mastering the concepts of addition and subtraction and building fluency in recalling the basic associations presented in this game are essential to success in later mathematics. Fluency is an individual attribute – challenge yourself with the game to get a sense of what levels of fluency you might expect your child to achieve. For Educators: MathTappers: Find Sums is designed to help learners to master basic addition and subtraction facts with understanding and then to encourage them to continue playing to develop efficient strategies and eventually improve their recall speed (fluency). This app doesn’t rely on the ‘magic’ of flash cards but rather presents useful models to support learners as they make sense of addition and subtraction. Although the game appears to be focused only on addition – subtraction is an inherent part of their activity and learning. Learners using this app are developing a sense of the relationship between two addends and a sum - providing them with opportunities to master both addition and subtraction facts concurrently. You cannot really understand that 7+3=10 or 3+7=10 without also understanding the rest of the fact family – i.e., that 10-7=3 and 10-3=7. It is expected that working with groups of fact families that share a common sum (e.g., sum to 10) will help learners to make connections between these families and synergistically enhance their mastery process. About: Design: Tim Pelton & Leslee Francis Pelton Programming: Mike Anderson, Joshua E Smith, Chris Rail & Garrett Reimer The designers of the MathTappers Apps are math educators and researchers seeking to create simple games that will help learners to make sense of mathematics one concept at a time. In each App we try to present at least one useful visual model to support learners as they strive to master the challenges presented. The regular version of each app is provided to users for free and is designed to be useful as-is. In addition, most MathTappers Apps offer an option to expand the feature set for a minimal fee. Revenues received from these upgrades will be used to support research on the educational utility of MathTappers Apps and further refinement and expansion of the MathTappers App collection.
