Math Tasks (Free)

Download the app called Math Task

In partners, work on finding the calculations for the tasks listed below. Measure the provided items using the rulers, then plug the numbers into the appropriate area of the app to help you find the correct answers. Be sure to write your answers including the unit of measurement (example: 124 inches squared).

Open Math Tasks.

Click on Geometric Shapes.

With your partner, have one person open the Math Tasks app and the other open Doodle Buddy or similar app.

Collaborate to solve the given math problems by working them out with Doodle Buddy or another similar app.

Then check the accuracy of your calculations by plugging the numbers into the Math Tasks app.

This app has formulas that will automatically do calculations for you.

Fetch Lunch Rush (Free)

1. Open the Fetch Lunch Rush app.

2. Ruff will give you orders for food. Find the game piece that has the right number of food items on it. Tap the food items to send the order to Ruff.

Teacher Prep: You will need to go to http://pbskids.org/fetch/lunch or have the application email you a copy of the QR codes game pieces.

Try Three Free (Cindy)

We'll demonstrate these three apps. Download and try the apps that would work for your grade level.

Download the Google Earth app. Click on the search icon and type in the GEC address (2500 S State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84115). Zoom in to the level needed to view the district property and buildings to answer the following questions. Work with groups of 2-3 to answer the questions.

1. On the West side of the property, there is a white shape with a black rectangle in the center of it (The Helipad). What type of polygon is the helipad?

2. Look at the Wilson playground. Write a ratio for the number of tetherball circles to the number of hopscotches painted there.

3. There is a "V" shaped parking lot on the SE side of the district buildings. About what percentage of the cars are red?

4. What season and time of day was this satellite photo most likely taken? What clues helped you decide?

5. There are some four squares (lg. and sm.) painted on the South side of Wilson. If 12 children went out and stood in individual squares, what fraction of the total number of squares would be filled with children? Can you simplify that fraction?

6. What other math questions could be asked about this aerial view of the GEC?

Number them 1-5 for each color set or 1-35 for the whole set

Find a storage system for headphones, etc.

Plan a rotation schedule with your school's team

The wireless system will come to you as soon as IS has them set up and it will sit on the cart. Find a place in your room where it can be plugged into a live port. If you don't have one, have your STS add a mini switch.

The laptop will be stored in the cart. Set it on the cart or nearby to do your syncing

Decide as a team what apps you want and start syncing away. You can sync up to 20 ipods (one drawer) at a time
