This session will involve playing the suite of iPad math games from Dragonbox, which includes games about algebra, geometry, and numbers & operations. We have 15 iPads for attendees, and this session will begin with playing the games (individually or in small groups, depending upon how many people show up). After some playing and exploration, we will facilitate a discussion about the different games, and how to support bridging the math content in the games to the math content in the classroom. We will also provide some useful handouts that assist in identify the learning standards within the games.
