The Center for Algebraic Thinking is developing mobile applications to facilitate middle and high school students’ algebraic understanding. These apps change learning algebraic concepts from static to dynamic. Students interact in game and learning modes to construct meaning with important algebraic topics. These are not apps that are intended for students to "play" with for hours but apps that focus on development of specific concepts for a short period of time. Most of these apps are meant to be easily integrated into instruction rather than used for drill or fill time.
