The Edvocate’s List of 54 Math Apps, Tools & Resources

Math is known to be one of the most boring subjects in kids’ eyes. So, how can teachers make learning math more interactive and more fun? True, teachers can make up games to teach a math concept that involves every student. But, when teachers need to help students in small groups or one-on-one, how can they make sure that other students are actively practicing math skills?

One of the great aspects of having tablets in the classroom is the availability educational apps. With these apps, students can individually learn, practice, and have fun with different subjects and concepts. Luckily, there are many good, quality math apps for students of all ages.
