During my student teaching sessions, I worked locally with third and fifth grade students. During our math sessions, we utilized an iPad. Here is a collection of apps that we found to be the most effective.
This app and website are great for students. They offer videos to teach several math topics including ratios, number lines, and scale factors. To go along with the videos are worksheets with practice problems and complete lesson plans for the teachers that align with the Common Core math standards. I have used this app with 5th graders and they enjoyed the "Bad Date" video.Edit Remove Move

Splash math is an amazing app for students. There is a different app for each grade at the elementary level. Students can pick what topic they want to practice and answer a certain number of problems correctly to unlock a game. They can pick the difficulty level and do not have to "unlock" the more difficult levels. They are provided with work space to complete problems. The best part is that the teacher is sent a weekly progress report to their email so they can track student progress. There is a free version but I highly recommend purchasing the full version.Edit Remove Move
