slide2

"Technology is essential in teaching and learning mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and enhances students' learning."

Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM)

slide3

Technology should not be used as a replacement for basic understandings and intuitions; rather, it can and should be used to foster those understandings and intuitions ... In short, technology can help students learn mathematics.

slide4

When technology is integrated, you will see..

  • Increase in student writing skills
  • Increase in student participation
  • Increase in student on-task behavior
  • Increase in student critical thinking and reasoning skills
  • A strengthened teacher community
  • Students have better attitudes towards learning
  • Students have confidence in their abilities
