How I Use It
I have used this product to teach addition and subtraction. Students were able to use this as a hole group to learn to jump on the number line the correct amount of spaces. It worked very well because students were able to touch the screen and be very engaged in the learning process. The only draw back was some students weren't able to manipulate the number line as well as others which may or may not have been the app itself.
My Take
I really love this as a teaching tool as it is less intimidating to students and it makes learning a, usually difficult subject, easy. This would make my teaching better because I would be able to use this in a small group setting as well for students who are more likely to stay engaged in something that is a learning opportunity but still is fun.
