My new favorite iPad App is Geometry Pad. It’s a great app for working on coordinate graphs, perimeter, area, and even negative numbers.
This week, my class connected the iPad to our projector and and projected the main screen onto the board (where I had handily taped a piece of chart paper). I traced the main axis onto the graph paper, and then the kids used the projected graph paper to find the coordinate graph points for their hearts. (My way of integrating Valentine’s day, lol!) Then, when we turned off the projector and voila we had a coordinate graph.
