Our own Mr. Gann is making the news! He is a 5th grade math teacher at Willard Intermediate School.
“We had a situation where we began rounding, and I noticed there just wasn’t a whole lot of apps for rounding,” says Gann.
So he contacted Apple and got the necessary software. “Painstaking as it was, I began the process of this new thing of creating apps,” says Gann.
Gann’s apps are used not only in his classroom, but also all over the world. People are downloading them on devices like iPods, iPhones, and iPads. You can find Mr. Gann’s math apps by searching “William Gann” in the App Store. Most of his apps cost 99 cents.

That’s right! One of our own Willard teachers had developed an App which has been approved by the Apple Store. Chip Gann, a 5th grade teacher a Willard Intermediate School, has published the Rounding Whole Numbers App.
Students have the opportunity to practice rounding whole numbers in a fun way with Rounding Whole Numbers. There are six levels that include rounding whole numbers to the nearest tens, hundreds, and thousands place. The goal is to round as many numbers correctly in under 30 seconds. High scores are saved and the user even has the opportunity to visit a short tutor section to learn how to round whole numbers.
Great work Mr. Gann!
