Grade Recommendation: 2nd and up
Specific Skill: Computation
For iPad, iPod, or Both: iPad
Surprisingly, iPads do not ship with a calculator app installed. Luckily, there are a few free options available in the App Store. This option works well for use in my early elementary classroom. I love how the numbers are big; easy for small fingers to touch. It's nothing fancy, but it gets the job of performing simple operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) done. Beware that ads (complete with the temptation to "visit site" or "try it free") run across the top of the screen. For that reason, you may want to select a paid/non-ads calculator app. In fact, there's a premium version of this app available for 99 cents that will eliminate the ads.
