Class Tech Tips: Action Graphing: Math & Physics iPad App

Gamification is a powerful way to engage students in the science and math classroom. The Universe and More, a nonprofit company founded by a high school teacher, has released a new game called Action Graphing. This iPad app helps students understand key concepts related to graphing. Students will learn how to analyze and interpret graphs to model the motion of real objects. They’ll see how the slope of the line represents an object’s velocity and the y-intercept of the line represents the object’s position.

Action Graphing helps teachers differentiate their instruction to meet the needs of individual students during graphing lessons. It’s a great option for students who need extra practice at home or for teachers to recommend to families during an Open School Night. Action Graphing has over sixty levels for students to move through and saves data to document student progress.
