Has anyone used one of these for a math or other class?  I'd love some information on what worked, what didn't, recommendations, etc.  We specifically need it for Algebra 2 with TPS.  They have their recommended brand, but say we can go with whatever.  I have major techie geeks in my house so making something work will not be an issue.

Thank you so much for your input!

DD has a Wacom Bamboo tablet we bought for her years ago for her Math courses from TTUISD.  I believe she found how to do her Math assignments with MS WORD and that she now uses it primarily for Art.

Arcadia, thank you for the link.  That was helpful.

Lanny, thanks for the info.

For what it’s worth, I contacted the teacher, and she said they use it daily.  Guess I’m spending $$$ on two tablets since I have two kids in the same class and section.  ? 

Thank you for your help!!

I use mine daily-- but I teach Math online and can't even think about how I would do my job without one!

I have the Wacom Intuos CTL-480 (formerly one of the Wacom Bambo line)  I like the smaller ones.  I've had bad luck with the wireless adapter (add on) so I just use usb.

I like the softer felt nibs more than the hard plastic ones they come with-- plus the tablet will last longer if you use the felt ones.

DO NOT use the driver that comes in the box-- always go to the brand site and download the most current driver there.

The Wacom tablets have a settings menu that takes a bit of fiddling with-- but once it is adjusted it is very simple to pick up the pen and write.  I suggest practicing by using your computer's paint program.
