** Note: This post ran on June 29, 2011 and the offers found here are not necessarily still valid. I have noticed that many of these same apps will come and go as $Free or discounted regularly, so you may still get lucky. Thanks!
As a member of UCET I received an email this morning letting me know about a special offer from McGraw-Hill. Today (Wednesday, June 29th) only you can get 11 iOS apps for $FREE thanks to the ISTE conference going on.
The best way to find the apps is to do a search on the iOS App Store for 'McGraw-Hill' with or without the dash. All of the apps are part of their 'Everyday Mathematics' collection and include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and other number games plus a vocabulary game too. The titles are:
• Monster Squeeze
• Baseball Multiplication (1-6 and 1-12)
• Divisibility Dash
• Equivalent Fractions
• Top-It (Addition and Subtraction)
• Beat the Computer Multiplication
• Name that Number
• Bluster (Vocabulary Game)
You probably won't be able to see the full title of each app, but as long as you see 'Everyday Mathematics' you should be in the right spot.
All of these apps can be found in the iOS App Store. I don't know if the apps are available on the Android Market because I don't use Android, but it would be worth a check.
I just downloaded them all and am excited to see where they will work in the classroom. I haven't used any of them yet, but I figured a free app is a free app. If you downloaded the apps, what do you think? How will you use them in the classroom? Let me know in the comments.
