Background information l.jpg
Background Information

  • The Lakeview Public Schools Math Curriculum is based on the Everyday, or Chicago Math Series.

  • This series discourages the use of technology, particularly calculators.


Affordances of technology l.jpg
Affordances of Technology

  • Transformation

    • How does the use of technology transform the lesson?

  • Collaboration

    • How does the use of technology promote communication among students and teachers?

  • Information

    • How does the technology provide students with information?

  • Representation

    • Does the technology present the material in a new and different way?


Ways technology benefits math instruction in the classroom l.jpg
Ways Technology Benefits Math Instruction in the Classroom

  • Reinforces previously taught concepts

  • Solves complex mathematical algorithms more efficiently and accurately

  • Leads to exploration and discovery of new concepts

  • Provides complex real world situations and promotes real world solutions

  • Eliminates human calculation errors assuming algorithms are correctly inputted

  • Graphic simulations replace tedious paper-pencil representations of concepts

  • Allows students to manipulate data, therefore encouraging them to make assumptions about various possible outcomes when dealing with mathematical variables

Possible ways to implement technology into the classroom l.jpg
Possible Ways to Implement Technology into the Classroom

  • Centers

  • Group Projects

  • During Math Game Times

  • Bypassing the text and allowing calculator usage on some activities

  • Additional Math Programs that enhance our current series


Benefits of using technology in math l.jpg
Benefits of Using Technology in Math

  • Increased understanding of concepts

  • Solve more complex mathematical problems

  • Explain mathematical thinking to others

  • Graph data more accurately

    • Manipulate data

    • Show variable differences


Final thoughts l.jpg
Final Thoughts

  • Technology is not a crutch that students can lean on making them math disabled, but it is an intellectual and emotional laboratory powering them to new heights.

  • How can we expect our students to be successful in a future filled with technology, if we don’t prepare them?
