    Hey,

    I`m going to be tutoring secondary maths next academic year to earn extra cash before hopefully doing a PGDE secondary maths - and just wondered 2 things:

    1) What exactly does an I-pad mini come "pre-loaded" with?
    (you can probably tell from my language I know nothing about this gadget), and what can it do, exactly?

    2) I would only really be interested in it if it helped me interact better with students, and

    help them with any problems in "real time" in a "virtual presence" type way, such as using some kind of "writing application" to post or email on social networks or You-tube hand-written solutions, and maybe videos of me explaining things - is this possible?

    I have heard of, and may be interested in something called "maths studio" - and "wolfram alpha" - but don`t know how costly these would be to keep "running" (again, excuse my beginner`s terminology) - I already have a laptop loaded with 2 mathematics software programs - mathematica and maple, but have a feeling that students (being probably more technically minded than me!!) would find something like maths store more intuitive because it would be instant.

    I would appreciate any input.

    Many thanks, guys!
