As I get ready to send my students off for summer break, I’ve searched high and low for the top ten math apps to help them retain what they’ve learned this year. Many of my students have tablets, and I really want them to use their technology to its full potential. I plan to send home the printable sheet (found at the bottom of this post) in my end of the year gifts so parents have a math game plan for the summer! Without further adieu, here are my Top Ten Math Apps.
