If you work in education, chances are good you know exactly what CCSS stands for! However, knowing exactly what to do with those Common Core State Standards is another thing entirely. Many states begin implementation this fall, and educators everywhere are trying to figure out what this means for their lesson plans.
Indiana jumped on board the CCSS train quite early, and my district fully implemented in my school last year (grades K-4). This list, then, brings you some of the best apps I’ve seen for use with the CCSS in math. My focus is on the primary level, but I’ve also included some apps that I know are good for upper levels, too. Read on to start planning!
Normally I get to chat in this space and tell you all about this app or that, and usually tell you to rush off to the iTunes store (or not, sometimes) and download the latest and greatest. Except I’m not doing that today. I’m telling you to keep your eyes peeled for Loca Math from….Loca Math! This is an up and coming app that hasn’t hit the iTunes store yet, but has a few things they want you to know. Most of all, it is that it’s main goal is to make learning fun.
