Title: Flip that Angle
Digital Tool: iFlashcards
Digital Tool Description: iFlipflashcards is a flashcard application developed as an Android application that is available in the Google Play store. This application allows users to create their own digital definitions, images, and graphs on flashcards that are accessible anywhere at the click of a button. iFlipflashcards also allows users to turn their digital flashcards into practice quizzes that the application keeps data on as the flashcards are used. This application is a good resource to use when teaching angles. It allows graphed angles (obtuse, acute, right) to be loaded onto a digital flashcard with the definition of the type of angle and why the displayed angle is considered the angle that it is labeled. This allows students to practice the terms that were learned during a lesson on angles at anytime.
