How I Use It
Within my classroom, I have used this app with small groups, individuals, and also as a whole class. Since it is a free app, I had my students download it at the beginning of class one day. While doing whole class examples on new material or even reviewing, my students used MyScript Calculator to solve equations rather than using our classroom calculators. I have also had students finish their classroom work and join with a partner to check their answers using MyScript Calculator. Students seem to really like this app because it is more interactive than just pushing buttons on a calculator.
My Take
MyScript Calculator is a great interactive app that is an easy way to incorporate technology into the classroom. Students are able to use this app very easily because of the tutorial provided when first using the app. Students really enjoy using their fingers to write out equations and watch their handwritten equations turn into a digital form. However, this app is can only be used as a calculator. It does not enhance the students learning of how to solve different equations.
