(Las Vegas, NV)  — Computer tablets are on the agenda in some local math classes.  More than 1000 Clark County algebra students are now armed with Apple iPads and an interactive textbook.  The pilot program is costing the school district nearly $800,000, but officials hope the iPads will help boost math scores.  Only half of the valley’s high school sophomores score high enough in the math portion of the statewide exam to graduate.  Students must pass all four portions of the exam to get a diploma.
