Math goodies

This past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Annual Conference of the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State.  Yes - me and Math.  This conference gave me the opportunity to gain some skills in the "new" math (yes, I did number bonds!) and gather some terrific resources, including websites and apps.  Below is a list of links that I think will provide you with some cool new FREE tools.  If you'd like to use the apps, please let me know and I can load them on either our ipads or ideapads.  Email me or come see me for details on how to reserve these items and load the apps.  Many of the websites also have app versions.  Check 'em out!
