Mike Cavagnero, the Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, was one of the initial faculty members to teach a class in A&S Wired in Fall of 2011. His class was titled Measuring Science. This video showcases the students' final projects, in which they used their iPads as a tool to help in their research, data and analysis.
The iPad is an amazing piece of technology that can take us anywhere we want to go. But, aside from being a portal to the internet, game console, and personal music machine (iTunes – you’ve probably lost count of the songs you’ve downloaded), it also has applications that can be functional in the classroom.
