Congratulations to Holli Taylor on winning the AzTEA Ignite Presentation Showcase!
Holli's presentation highlighted the math apps below:
Turn photos into animations and explore math concepts as you go in a powerful and fun animation studio. Choreo Graph was inspired by dance and choreography to learn and explore math. Coordinate geometry, angles, and translations have never been this fun.
Explore ratios and proportions while making funny pictures that make things look wildly bigger and smaller than they really are. Take photos, make measurements, explore the world in a whole new way!
Create hilarious and dazzling photo mashups while exploring fraction concepts. Fractions have never been this fun – you may just want to Instagram your math homework!
Build 3D models of things you see in the real world and explore the relationships between surface area and volume in a powerful and fun 3D modeling environment.
Educators can inspire learners to think in 3D space and explore concepts of surface area and volume as they build complex shapes from simple components.
