More About QR Codes

A few months ago I blogged about using QR codes and posted the following circles activity: 
Parts of a Circle

Over the past few months I have seen activities developed by more and more teachers using these great little squares :)  I recently presented on this topic (Presentation PowerPoint Link) and wanted to share with you some great activities and projects out there waiting for you to utilize in your classroom.  Many of them are referenced in the PowerPoint file located above, but I will list a few more below. 

In addition to the activities, the Power Point also gives information on how to create your own codes and activities.  Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Also, if you have any QR Code activities you would like to share, please feel free to link us to them in the comments on this page :)

iLearn Math with iPads

Well, it has been a while since I last posted.  So....I thought I would share with all of you some of the things I have presented on this summer.  I will try to post them all this week.  
Tonight, I am posting handouts for a short one-hour presentation I will make tomorrow on using iPads to help students learn math.  These apps go beyond playing games to learn basic facts or practice computation.  These will provide students with a real life connection to math.
The first page is a list of the apps, some paid and some free.  The next few pages are a sample of activities you could use with some of the apps.  I didn't include activities for all of the apps, but I think you can easily see how they could be incorporated into a lesson.  The apps are for geometry, measurement, and data/probability.
Here is the TpT Link:
