Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can allow students to use this app for support when graphing equations.
  2. When teachers are lecturing, students can register with this app and take notes directly in it. That way, when they are solving equations, they can easily access the information they may need.
  3. Teachers can have students solve an equation by hand and then check their work using this app.
