CEP 805-Learning Mathematics with Technology
Success in today’s classrooms demands assistance from technology.
Technology needs to be readily available for education.
Technology is essential in teaching and learning mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and enhances students' learning.
-NCTM’s Technology Principle
Allow teachers the ability to determine appropriate technology for their classrooms.
“Computers make possible experiences and representations that cannot take place in the real world, providing new experiences and improved understanding.”
Networking within Quincy Middle School’s Mathematics Department will provide students with the most effective education possible.
Teachers prepare brief presentations to introduce new technology.
“Research and development in technology and curriculum dedicated to democratizing access to the Mathematics of Change and Variation, including ideas underlying Calculus.”
To democratize access
to the big ideas of mathematics
Actor A, Big Red, and Actor B, The Green Giant, both start off strong as the race gets underway. Unfortunately, at 4 seconds into the race, Actor B gets sidetracked when he sees a friend standing beside the path. Not wanting The Green Giant to lose the race, he quickly reminds him to “keep running!”. Distracted, The Green Giant starts running back toward the starting line. Realizing his mistake, he quickly turns around and runs as fast as he can to catch up to his rival, Big Red. As his poor physical condition gets the best of him, he slows slightly, but still manages to finish the race in a tie with Big Red.
