Abstract: According to Ellis, S., (2011) “One of the benefits of iPad is that it enables children to self-direct their learning, and it is easy and enjoyable for parents to understand and get involved” (p. 61). The goal of this study is to determine if the faculty will need to restructure the curriculum to adjust for faster content mastery from the iPad use. This preliminary study is examining the mathematics scores from second grade students in a rural, catholic school district. The focus is the content mastery speeds by the use of iPads as engagement and immediate response tools. In investigating prior research, there are limited studies that focus on elementary mathematics and content mastery with the use of iPads. Our goal is to show a correlation between the iPad use, the improved test scores, and accelerated curriculum.
