RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS

iPad Apps (Note: Apps come and go from the App Store, and sometimes become outdated for the iOS. These are a few of the apps I've used with students over the years. Some may no longer be available.)

The following free apps are great for promoting logical thinking and reasoning skills:

  • Numbers Logic Puzzle (iPad and iPhone/iTouch) - touch number tiles to add to 10 and they move out of your way; keep going until color tiles are gone (hint: you can add more than 2 tiles)
  • Mathdoku+ Sudoku Style (iPad and iPhone/iTouch) - sudoku with various grids available (3 x 3, etc) to give different levels of difficulty
  • Bumpling free (iPad and iPhone/iTouch) - spatial problem to bump ladybugs out of the way (hint: the flowers are not just background, but the way the petals line up are the lines the bugs can move)
  • Sticker Sudoku (iPad and iPhone/iTouch) - this one may be a good intro to Sudoku before going into the Mothdoku app
  • Pushy lite (iPad and iPhone/iTouch) - visual / spatial puzzles, and yes I will admit it took me three tries just to do the 2nd level (and the 1st one is a "gimme" just to show you how it works)!!!! :-(
  • Guess the Code - a convergent thinking game where the player has to guess an order of colors - clues tell how many of the guessed colors are correct, correct but in the wrong location, or incorrect - similar to the board game, "Mastermind"
  • Mastermind - an iPad version of the board game, where the player has to guess an order of colors - clues tell how many of the guessed colors are correct, correct but in the wrong location, or incorrect
