  • Students used TI-85 graphing calculators to find an approximate solution for a system of two equations
    • Students with TI-83 Plus graphing calculators were able to find a precise solution

Jeff Tomlinson – Part I
  • Students predicted NCAA Men/Women/Combined winners from the Sweet Sixteen
  • Students analyzed the data on paper using:
    • Charts
    • Ratios
    • Fractions
    • Decimals
    • Percentages

  • Students then used Excel to graph one of their charts
  • Students graphed a new chart with their classroom statistics

  • Students used an oscilloscope to understand the representation of sound
    • An oscilloscope is a machine that takes sound in through a microphone and produces a graph on the screen
    • Sound waves are represented by sine curves
    • As pitch increases, wavelength decreases

  • Students used calculators to simplify fractions by turning them into decimals and fractions
  • Use of calculators increased test scores from 83% to 90%
findings
Findings
  • Interested
    • Students were more engaged in activity because of visual cues (Mrs. Jewell)
  • Understanding
    • Students were able to grasp concepts more rapidly because of visual reinforcement (Mr. Tomlinson & Mrs. Reinhart)
  • Assessment
    • Student’s scores increased with access to technology applications (Mr. Cox)
recommendations
Recommendations
  • Share findings with the rest of the Math Department
  • Explore alternative methods of technology inclusion in academic lessons
  • Train elementary staff in the effectiveness of short technology “bursts”
  • Additional TI-83 Plus graphing calculators needed
