Primary Chalkboard: Must-Have Fact Fluency Apps for the Classroom

Must-Have Fact Fluency Apps for the Classroom


It's me, Matt from Digital: Divide & Conquer, to share some of my favorite math apps for improving fact fluency (and making them more fun for the kids). I have a small bank of iPads in my room, and when they're not being used for break time to play mine craft, math fact fluency practice is the big agenda item. 

Below are some of my go-to math fact fluency apps. These are the apps that keep my kids engaged, motivated to learn, and are extremely easy to use. I've been using most of these for a couple of years.

OPERATION MATH
The James Bond of math games. The time and number of problems are the villains.  Speed is your friend. Games last only a minute, so my students can get in quite a few in a short time.  I love this game.  $
 

MATH HEROES
Surprisingly simple and easy to use. My students and own children love it. They seem to really enjoy the ninjas fighting (go figure).  Lots of levels to choose from, about 10 problems in a level, and it moves quick.  It's perfect and my students will play it forever.


OPERATION MATH SQUAD 
This is the team version of Operation Math. Kids compete against the time and even against other students. Four kids can play at a time, but it's really engaging for them. Plus, if students miss a certain amount they get locked out of the game, until the next round.  These games are about five minutes long.  Just be ready for the kids to get loud when they play.  $


SUSHI MONSTER
Monsters and sushi. The kids eat this up, no pun intended. It's from Scholastic and fun and easy to use. It's new to me, but my students are quick to use it.  It'll be on our iPads for awhile.


MATH VS ZOMBIES
Exactly what it says it is, math and zombies. Knock out the zombies with math facts. It's gone through a few updates and keeps improving.  They've also added more number sense and counting to the app, which is definitely a plus.  $$


YODEL OH!
Made by the same company who did Operation Math, it reminds me of the Price Is Right game with the yodeler. Same great music too. It's awesome.  $


These are my six go to math fluency apps. Most can be changed for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. They're also game based, which is pretty important for the kids because math facts can be pretty boring. I don't blame them. Sure, most of them cost $2.99 --but based on my bad math it averages out to about three cents a week.  I'll take it.

  25. Colored Pencil Drawing Techniques

    What are colored pencils?

    Colored pencils carries with it a wood shaft that's crammed with coloured

    pigment. This pigment is control along by a binder, that once meet a

    surface, transfers color.


    Colored pencils , as a medium,

    area unit a preferred selection for several artists. this can be part as a

    result of they're thus wide accessible, portable, and comparatively cheap.

    once used properly, coloured pencil drawings is made with color and agree a

    painting.


    The Pigmented Core

    The center of the pencil may be a pigmented core that's control along by a

    binder. The binder of the pencil affects however it performs on a surface.

    Most pencils feature a wax-based binder, whereas others area unit oil-based,

    or gum-based (watercolor pencils).

    Waxy binders area unit simply superimposed and might be designed informed the

    surface with ease. The core of those pencils is definitely broken, thus care

    ought to be taken to not drop the pencils. Burnishing is definitely

    accomplished with wax-based pencils letting mixing and intermixture of

    colours on the the surface.


    Oil-based pencils generally have a stronger core and resist breaking. These

    pencils square measure clearly waterproof. They behave in a very slightly

    completely different manner than their wax-based counterparts. Layering and

    intermixture is definitely accomplished, however I even have found that the

    wax-based binders perform higher.

    Gum-based binders square measure found in watercolor pencils. thereforert|

    this kind} of pencil is so completely different from a standard coloured

    pencil, that I hesitate together with it on this page. the fabric within the

    core of the pencil is activated once water comes in-tuned with the fabric.

    The techniques used for watercolor pencils square measure terribly completely

    different than those used for ancient coloured pencils. you'll investigate

    watercolor pencil techniques here.

    How to Use Colored Pencils

    There area unit many ways in which coloured pencils may be used properly. I

    most typically see students use them incorrectly. once used properly,

    coloured pencils will offer the result of a totally coloured painting. (See

    my coloured pencil work.) the subsequent guide can assist you use coloured

    pencils in a very means that's most productive.
