Animal Watch Vi Suite: Math App

Graphs and Word Problems? No Problem!

Endangered animals and invasive species and MATH? This exciting iOS app incorporates motivating content into word problems, graphs and other core math skills. Cheetahs, black rhinos, gray wolves and white sharks are woven into the 24 math units that align with 6th grade Common Core Math Standards. AnimalWatch is designed for 5th – 7th grade students.

AnimalWatch Vi Suite is an accessible iOS app developed specifically for students with visual impairments and blindness – braille files are provided in downloadable .brf format (to be embossed on-site) to make the graphics accessible for braille students. (Materials are available in UEB or UEB and Nemeth formats.) Downloaded PDF files are also available to be printed on microcapsule paper and run through a fuser (e.g., Pictures in a Flash). 

AnimalWatch Vi Suite, a FREE iOS app, is available in the App Store.

For more information, go to APH’s AnimalWatch website. The User Guide, download files, and additional information are available on this website.

Please share the attached AnimalWatch flier with general education math teachers. AnimalWatch is a wonderful math tool for ALL students.
