Wolfram Mathematica: Graphing Calculators: Comparative Analyses Although now rare in college and professional settings, graphing calculators are still common in high-school math education. But as full-scale computers become cheaper, smaller and ever more ubiquitous, the future of standalone calculators is increasingly unclear. As the world's broadest and deepest mathematical system, Mathematica's computational capabilities vastly exceed anything that can be achieved with a calculator—and provide a completely different level of educational possibilities. While calculators are easy to use for simple operations, they rapidly become unwieldy when many steps are required. Mathematica, on the other hand, is immediately able to offer a fully scalable interface with dramatically more compelling graphics and interactivity, as well as greater systematic learnability.

Our Little Ones Will Have A Song For Every Story With Cantata Learning A few weeks ago I got a special package in the mail. I opened it to find two picture books. It was from my friends at Cantata Learning, a new publishing company from Mankato, Minnesota creating books for children 3-8 years old.
Octave GNU Octave is a high-level interpreted language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides capabilities for the numerical solution of linear and nonlinear problems, and for performing other numerical experiments. It also provides extensive graphics capabilities for data visualization and manipulation. Octave is normally used through its interactive command line interface, but it can also be used to write non-interactive programs. The Octave language is quite similar to Matlab so that most programs are easily portable.

Fun Kids Online Math Games "Sheppard offers everything from early math to pre-algebra. The lessons include interactive activities to practice concepts. Students can shoot fruit, pop balloons, and even play math man (the math version of pac man!). Fractions, place value, money, and basic operations are some of the areas that are covered. Check it out at " --Shannon Jakeman , sjakeman.blogspot.com "Online math games, like the ones that you'll find for free at Sheppard Software, provide a valuable opportunity for children to learn a great deal while they're having fun. Joyce and I Want To Know What Apps Are In Your Pocket...Please Add To Our Padlet! Joyce Valenza and I are getting ready for a master class we are teaching in Australia next month. Our workshop App Smashing Make and Take Day With Shannon and Joyce will be a fun, creative, high energy day where participants will learn how to use a variety of digital tools together and to be able to create, take, and use them from the workshop in their own school communities. As we prepare for our day with wonderful educators in Australia, we also thought it would be fun to get ideas and favorite apps from our friends. Please share with us what apps you are using....What is new? What apps are great to use to get your students creating? What apps are you using to organize yourself?
