Some great web sites and web resources

Great livebinder - Math Apps IOS (Notice they use another nice Web 2.0 tool - Livebinders to put together this list.) 

10,000 Newspapers On Google Maps - NewsPaper Map

Infuse Learning is a free student response system that works with any Internet-connected device:

STUDENT FILE MANAGEMENT WITH GOOGLE DRIVE - A great document on setting up shared folders with students and classes.  Covers all the methods, pros and cons, and includes YouTube video tutorials. 

bibliography and citation tools for students  Remember, one of these, EasyBib, we have incorporated right into Google Apps and it's available via the drop-down menu. 

Have you used Diigo for bookmarking? If not, it's probably the one you should be using for bookmarking websites.  It offers a lot of research tools as well, including highlighting on web sites, putting notes on sites, and more.  Check out this great resource on Diigo. 

Math Lessons Using Google SketchUp  (We do have licensing for Google Sketchup for Norris.) 

Top 10 smartphone apps for students - Daily Californian 

More IOS (iPad/iPhone) apps:

Grafikal is a powerful graphing calculator for your iPhone and iPad. Use its custom keyboard to quickly enter the variables and equations you need to draw a graph. The graphs can then be displayed in old fashioned 2d axis graphs or viewed in 3D. With iCloud support, any mathematician should take a closer look at this app.
