Instead of having to use long tape measures, students can use their smart phones to measure distances.  Smartmeasure is free for androids.  Theodolite for the iphone is $3.99.  Please comment if you know a free app for the iphone.

A free app that allows you to type in your class roster and award points (positive and negative) to your students throughout the period.  Each student is assigned a colorful avatar, and if you have the right equipment, you can project it on a screen, so students can see when they’ve earned points. You can assign parents and students code numbers so they can check their progress.  Sound affects too.

This is a terrific tool you can download for free.  Not only does it allow you to graph equations, you can type in a generic equation such as y = a(x-h)^2+k, and it allows you to manipulate the equation to see the effects of different values of a, h, and k.
