The number of terms that students are expected to learn in geometry is a little crazy. We counted 30 different new vocabulary words at the end of four days of instruction. So I checked out an iPad cart and decided to have the students find real life examples of geometry in the world around them. After introducing the symbols, and describing each term’s features…they solidified their understanding of each new word with photos. (We pulled out some of the trickier ones from our minds as well.)

We recorded the findings on a giant chart!

Students captured real life examples of: point, line segment, line, ray, intersecting lines, perpendicular lines, and parallel lines with iPads.

It was both motivating and fun to use technology, as well as promote math talk in the classroom.

this is so helpful thanks guys!! 🙂

this helped so much! thanks you guys;)

Thank you! 🙂

thanks for so many ideas!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a wonderful idea!

Generally the only technology I use for math is a game or two like these Math Games or Math Blaster. Your idea is infinitely better. Thanks very much!

thank you guys it helps me so much for my homework and explanation

thank you all so much if wasn’t for god and u all i would of fail my project and again i thank you

real ray guys

With what age/ grade did you use this?
