What is Teaching Table?
Teaching Table is a math app designed for the iPad. We provide a set of digital math manipulatives that educators can use to create custom interactive lessons. These lessons can be shared with students, parents and fellow teachers.
Each Teaching Table widget is designed in collaboration with real educators who face challenges in explaining math concepts to their students. Even after the application is released, we will be continuously providing new digital manipulatives to keep growing Teaching Table’s versatility.

Part of what makes the Teaching Table math app so versatile is the ability to create lessons on your iPad and then share them with students, parents and fellow educators who have the app. Teaching Table allows educators to email saved lessons as an attachment from within the app. Simply tap the “Tools” button (it looks like a gear) next to the “Student Mode” button on the right hand side of the top toolbar. Once you have accessed the options, tap “Email Notebook”. A pop up window will appear in the app that will allow you to input the email address you want to send the lesson to.
Recipients of the email simply have to tap the attached lesson and it will automatically be opened in Teaching Table.
