### PEERS Study Table Project:Using Technology in Mathematics

Susan Jewell Rose Reinhart

Jeff Tomlinson Jason Cox

Team Members:

Susan Jewell
• 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
Jeff Tomlinson – Part II
• Students then used Excel to graph one of their charts
• Students graphed a new chart with their classroom statistics
Rose Reinhart
• 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
Jason Cox
• Students used calculators to simplify fractions by turning them into decimals and fractions
• Use of calculators increased test scores from 83% to 90%
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
