DROPitTOme and Dropbox

with 2 comments

I realize many of you are already using Dropbox to share papers with your students, now you can allow students to drop off papers securely. This app gives you a unique password secure website students can use to drop off papers. Students will not have access to other peoples work and their papers will be time stamped when submitted. This app connects to your existing Dropbox account making life so much easier. Check it out at http://www.dropitto.me/

MyScript Calculator and FluidMath

MyScript Calculator and FluidMath

MyScript Calculator and FluidMath

I recently came across a couple of apps that look promising for my Math friends, MyScript Calculator and Fluidmath. Both are handwriting recognition apps that lets you write freehand on the screen, converts to text, and then solves the equation. MyScript deals with Trigonometric, while Fluidmath deals with Algebra, Calculus, and Physics.

MyScript Calculator is available for iOS and Android and is free.

Fluidmath works on the iOS and Android. It comes in two version, FluidMath 2013 and FluidEquations 2013, both of which have a fee.

If you are looking for a math app that gives you to the freedom of paper and pen, these just may be for you. Check them out at the App Store.
