Using QR Codes in Math

by mdritter85

Mr. Chris Adams’ fifth grade class at Western Salisbury Elementary School used QR reader applications on iPods and iPads to learn math.

“I used the QR reader in a guided math center.  The center had two objectives.  The first asked the students to focus on the concept of place value.  The second required the studentsImage to understand numbers in standard, word,and expanded form.  The students worked collaboratively to find the answers to 12 questions. Once the groups of students had arrived at their answers to the questions, they then used the camera in an iPod or iPad along with the QR reader app to check their work.  The QR code revealed to the students the correct value of digits and the correct form of the number.”

Thanks to Mr. Adams for his work integrating technology into the math classroom!
