FREE iPad Apps for Education: Vol. 1 - Math Apps


Volume 1 - Math Apps



It is apparent that presently there is a rapid evolution in educational technology, and students, as well as teachers, enjoy having access to this new mode of learning and teaching. However, technology can be very expensive. Being that many teachers own, or have access to an iPad, either their personal one or one provided by the school, I thought I would share with all of you some of the FREE apps I have found online. I searched for apps that have good ratings, are fairly easy to use, and should not have any in-app purchases available.  If you know of any apps that fall into this category, but have not been mentioned in the corresponding blog entry, please add them in the comment section below, so we can have as many FREE resources available to us as possible.

Here is the schedule for apps:
Volume 1 Math Apps
Volume 2 Science Apps
Volume 3 Reading Apps
Volume 4 Social Studies Apps
Volume 5 Multiple Subject Apps

Volume 1 - Math Apps


This app allows students to compare fractions, decimals, and percents by using virtual manipulatives.




No need to use the keyboard for this calculator. Just write your math problem on the screen, and the program will figure out the answer for you. This is a nice app to have students check their work at a center.





Students choose math activities to earn coins. They can choose from addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems. They also get to choose the level. The more difficult the level, the more points they earn. They use the coins they earn to modify their rocket. They then get to launch their rocket into space where they will participate in different math activities.




Sushi Monster! Is a Scholastic’s game that kids can use to practice, reinforce, and extend math fact fluency. It is an  app with engaging and appropriately challenging activities. 






This app is a great practice for students just beginning to learn about fractions.

I look forward to hearing about FREE math apps you have found or used in your classrooms. Thanks for taking the time to visit and collaborate with me.
