Studentsa are spending almost $200 each on their "graphing calculators". I need to know if "graphing calculators" can be replaced with an IPod Touch. Please leave a comment for us as we explore the possibilities. Here are the current apps related to "graphing calculator" in the App Store.
- Have you ever used any of these? Feedback?
- What capabilities and or functions do "graphing calculators" have that you can't live without?
- Are there educational issues related to students having multiple more functions with Touch at their disposal that would cause a problem?
Have at this. What do you think? I will be contacting these vendors and any others to ask some math teachers to test pilot these apps sometime. What are the positives and negatives? Issues with testing? Etc.
