Math and iPads? Yes!
Can you really use an iPad in the math classroom? Recently, at Midway Middle School, John Choins and his Baylor Intern, Amy Story, used a lesson that Ms Story created using QR codes. This lesson had the students moving around the classroom solving problems. Once the problem was solved, the students scanned a QR code to get immediate feedback. Each problem had a video explaining how to get the answer in case the students needed help. The teacher reported that the students were engaged, motivated and benefited from the entire lesson.

Here are some pictures of the students in action:
