February 2013 – The Most Popular Posts

It’s the end of the month again, so it’s time to go back and review Mathematics and Multimedia‘s most popular posts.  Since this is the month of the mathematically in love, I have written two posts that connects love and mathematics. First, 15 mathematics pick up lines which could either get a giggle or a slap and second, 3d heart graph which is an upgraded version of the 2d heart graph. The first mentioned post took the top spot and the second took the fourth.

Using Google Forms to Create Surveys

Google Form is a free tool that can be used to collect information, give quizzes, or perform online surveys.  In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to use Google Form in creating a simple survey. In this survey, we are going to ask for students who are interested to attend and Advanced Calculus Class to fill out the form. The only information needed are their full name and their course. The final output of this tutorial is this live form.

Steps in Creating a Google Form Survey

2.  On the left side of the page, click the CREATE button and then select Form from the list to display the Choose title and theme dialog box. » Read more

iPad App for Students: Matchmatics

Two weeks ago, I have shared to you Match Puzzle, and iPad app where the player takes away 1 matchstick to make the equation true. This week’s iPad app  is Matchmatics, another matchstick application where the player is required to move one matchstick to make the equation true.

Matchmatics

Matchmatics has three games:  Classic Mode, Time Attack, and Speedrun.  In In Classic Mode,  a player is given an initial score of 5000 and that score decreases as he solves the problem. In Time Attack, a player needs to solve 10 problems in the least possible time. In Speedrun a player is given 60 seconds to solve each problem.

This game can be used by Grade schoolers for practicing arithmetic. One possible improvement that the developers can add is to place a “Skip” button (in Time Attack, in particular) so that the player can skip if he could not solve a particular problem.

Matchmatics is also available as on iPhones and iPods. It has a trial version and the full version costs $0.99.
