Abstract: The paper at hand describes a classroom based research study in which iPads were used to explore the effectiveness of note taking and test review skills in a community college Intermediate Algebra course. Two course sections of intermediate level algebra students used iPad technology with a program application called ShowMe Interactive Whiteboard to complete homework and review for chapter tests. Students in both course sections were taught how to use the application and were then given specific directions and parameters for taking class notes and completing homework problems using the application. An analysis of test data indicated significantly higher scores (p<.05) for chapters where the ShowMe application was used for note taking and test review compared to sections where the application was not used.
