Make the Most of Math at Home 2

A student completing math at a deskWe recently shared mathematics resources to support learning with your students. Remember, math instruction at home doesn’t have to include worksheets and practice problems. Below are more resources for mathematics to share at home.

Math Apps

Hands On Equations App (Grades 4-12) - download from Google Play or the App Store
Learn to solve algebraic equations using manipulatives. This is a great tool to use along with your child. It will deepen the understanding of algebra for both of you!

Photo Math (K-12) - download from Google Play or the App Store
Literally take a photo of a math problem using your smartphone and it will work the problem for you, in case it’s been awhile since you have had to solve problems like your student is doing. Just remember that there is always more than one way to solve a problem, and the solution strategy this app provides is not the only one, but it might give you a place to start.
