HOT APPS for HOTS: iCard Sort

iCard sort is a great app to use for vocabulary & sorting. The apptivity below is a jeopardy-like vocabulary lesson that involves matching mathematics vocababulary to its corresponding definition. Lesson, extensions,and student record sheets are provided.


This activity can be delivered as a review or as a pre-activity. If teachers choose to do the activity before the lesson, they may want to allow students to use resources to locate words as well (textbooks,,,, etc…).

Bump it Up: Another extension to this activity would be for students to use the Contacts app (an standard app on the device) to build a math vocabulary database with images of the vocabulary (captured from the device or from the internet), a website that may give more information, & the definitions written in the notes field. (see Signs of Math Bump activity).

If a teacher has issues beaming or blasting decks due to wifi or internet issues, consier having students create the deck to match the grid. It may take a little more time but the activity will be saved.
