Enter D'Apps I'm using this site to gain competence with technologies that I intend to utilize in the classroom. My college is doing a pretty good job teaching traditional methods, however, I only have one instructional media class and I believe that 21st century students should learn with 21st century technology. When I begin my teaching career, I want to integrate technology starting on the first day, and the only way I'll be able to do that is to start practicing now. I'll use blogs in the classroom for communicating with parents and daily roving reporting by students. Students will also have the option to write on their own blog. Over the next couple of years I'll model how I'll use use blogging in the classroom on this site. Please check out my other sites concerning Handhelds and Podcasting.

Here's a working download site for MathCars . The following excerpt is from one of the 4 guides included with the download:

By solving challenges with these graphs, students encounter and master calculus concepts including the meanings of position and velocity graphs, the relationships between slope and rate, and area and accumulation.

The software was designed for middle-schoolers, but I'm pretty sure it could be used effectively with upper elementary students. Despite being older software (1998) it runs well off the the SD card on my OS5 device.
