Exploring AR - Augmented Reality

Mathematics Education

As a mathematics teacher, I have always tried to be focused on teaching for conceptual understanding vs. the traditional calculational understanding that makes math so boring and confusing for many students. I am not sure if I completely understand the full impact that Augmented Reality can have on teaching and learning mathematics, but I am willing to learn. I found a really useful website called Two Guys and Some iPads and explored the AR examples they had posted/reviewed. I developed an iPad professional development seminar for some math instructors at Wilkes Community College a couple years ago and after reviewing this website, I now realize that I had used some AR apps without even knowing it. Go figure!
