iPads offer a new and engaging platform for young children to learn mathematics. Due to the newness of digital play for young children, this research seeks to inspire mathematics educators to consider the attributes of the apps that would support maximized learning for elementary students. Digital platforms have been depicted as being transformative in the learning process. However, very modest amounts of guidelines for teachers on how to choose apps have been explored. Approximately 35 apps were analyzed for criteria of cognitive demand, mathematics content, engagement, differentiation, and ease of use of the app. The apps were then rated with a developed rubric. Two researchers rated the apps individually and then a consensus was reached among all two of the researchers. The goal of the research is to support teachers in the implementation of iPad use into the classroom by providing the teachers with a rubric that examines apps. The presentation will teach effective implementation skills to promote academic student success in the preschool classroom. The researchers identifies ten number sense apps that will be presented along with the rubric that will guide teachers on choosing appropriate apps for learning. The research study seeks to inspire mathematics educators to consider the attributes of apps that will support increased learning.
