Make Math Flashcards on Canva

Canva is my go-to recommendation whenever someone asks me for help with anything requiring a bit of an eye for design. So on Wednesday when a reader asked me for a tool to create printable flashcards Canva was my recommendation. There are more than 300 flashcard templates in Canva's design gallery. In that gallery you'll find templates for making flashcards for math, spelling, geography, and more. And all of the templates can be modified to fit your needs. 

In this short video I demonstrate how to use Canva to create printable math flashcards. While watching the video pay attention to my trick for making all of the cutting lines exactly the same. 



Applications for Education
There is still a time and place for offline flashcards. The reader who emailed me this week wanted to make flashcards that her students could use at home with their parents in a screen-free environment. Canva provides a good way to make those flashcards to distribute to students and parents. Of course, students can also use Canva to create their own printable flashcards.

Math Practice Flashcards for Android Phones

Math Practice Flash Cards is a free Android App from TeachersParadise.com. The app designed for elementary school students. As the name implies, Math Practice Flash Cards is a set of flashcards for practicing addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The app allows you to use pre-made sets of flashcards or create your own set of flashcards. To create your own set of flashcards just choose the parameters of largest numbers and smallest numbers in the flashcard set. You also have the option to choose from "fun" mode which is not timed or the timed mode.

I gave Math Practice Flash Cards a try on both my Samsung Galaxy Tablet and my Motorola Photon. The app does not appear to be optimized for tablets yet, but it does work very well on my phone.

Applications for Education
Math Practice Flash Cards could be a nice way for kids to practice mental math calculations wherever they are.
