Adding with our iPads
We tried out a new app recently (Tens Frame) that lets us use the iPad as a math manipulative for addition and subtraction. Not one of the "counters" got lost and there was no mess on the floor to clean up afterwards!
That is a great idea.

We are 1-1 with iPads in the classroom now, but we had only two iPads for a long time. Sometimes iPads are good for one to one, especially with the adaptive technologies that the New iPad provides.
We often had groups of students using iPads together. A wonderful invention called a Belkan Rock Star lets up to five students use headphones at once with one iPad. Whole group use of an iPad is also possible, especially if you have a dongle to attach the iPad to a projector, or Apple TV.

Have you ever assigned multiple students to one iPad? Does everyone get one, or is it something that individuals go to a center to do? I would love to know your strategies since many schools have iPads but not enough for every student!

This is fantastic! I teach middle school math and we are getting iPad's next year. I have been brainstorming how to incorporate them in my classroom successfully with 8th grade students. By checking out your blog I realized I can use stations and have the kids practice their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division! This will help them to better their skills! Thanks for sharing your awesome ideas! :)

Great idea! Ipads are such wonderful tools and the children have genuine interest in them.

ipads are great for math. I am a 4th grade math teacher and my students work with ipads to practice and improve their multiplication math facts.
