    Abstract

    Increasingly iPads™ are being used in schools and prior-to-school settings, with a plethora of Apps available for mathematics learning. Despite the growing number of Apps available in the iTunes App Store, there has been limited systematic analysis of the pedagogic design of Apps designed for mathematics learning. This paper describes a content analysis of Apps that are currently available as 'educational' content in the iTunes App Store and highlights the limited range of pedagogic designs available for mathematics learning.
