Graph

This is an excellent free graphing software. I use this quite frequently in the office when I need to sketch a quick example for an item. In the classroom it can be used to create your own custom graphs for instruction and assessments. Students can also benefit from this resource. SHARE! It’s very intuitive and easy to navigate. Graphs can be snagged and/or saved to insert into just about any type of document, including websites. Click the “Graph” link above and get started. Have fun!

Amazing Math Software – FluidMath

I’m not sure how FluidMath found me on Twitter, but I’m so happy they did. Finally, someone has created a math software that WORKS for math teachers and the way they teach. I’ve used a Tablet PC since 2004, for both instruction and for personal use. My students absolutely loved the features a tablet provided me for instruction, but wow! If I had only had this software, I would have knocked their socks off!

FluidMath

These are only a few of the things I love so far:

  1. It reads math hand writing, including math symbols and formatting.
  2. It has graphing tools that are effortless, precise, readable and adjustable.
  3. It has just enough bells and whistles, such as color changing tools and styles, to capture students interest and allow for emphasis throughout instruction.
  4. The graphs act like Java applets that are completely responsive to changes made my hand.
  5. It can easily be used with Microsoft Word in creating assignments, assessments, and notes.
And, so many more.
What I would like to investigate with this software is how well it works with the functionality of Microsoft Office OneNote, particularly the recording feature. I would love to see a lessons recorded with the teacher/class speak using this software so that it can be uploaded and archived on the teacher’s blog or website. This way, if a student misses a lesson, they can simply cue it up later and not miss a beat!
I am very impressed with this software. I can’t wait to purchase a copy of my own! I’ll keep you posted!
