Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM)**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.**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**TI-83 Plus Emulator**• Cost: Free • http://ciw.asd.wednet.edu/~jbassett/ti/ • With this program, you can emulate a TI-83 calculator on your computer.**TI-InterActive -**• http://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/productDetail/us_ti_interactive.html • TI InterActive!™ •TI InterActive! brings the power of TI graphing calculators to your computer. • Cost: $63.99 Function Example**National Library of Virtual Manipulatives**• http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/vlibrary.html • The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM) is an NSF supported project that began in 1999 to develop a library of uniquely interactive, web-based virtual manipulatives or concept tutorials, mostly in the form of Java applets.**Shodor Interactivate**• http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/ • The goals of Project Interactivate are the creation,collection, evaluation, and dissemination of interactive Java-based courseware for exploration in science and mathematics.**MyMathLab**• Pearson Education www.mymathlab.com**MyMathLab – What I do**• Computer-Assisted Instruction • Set Prerequisites for homework & quizzes • Upload PowerPoints • Upload Annotated PowerPoints • Use PowerPoint to answer Student Questions**MyMathLab StudyTitle V**• Fall 2005 • Math 0312 & Math 1314 • What is the effect of the assignment of MyMathLab homework upon the achievement of students? • Pretest – Posttest Control Group Experimental Design**Pretest- Math 0312**• Originally contained 20 items. • 5 items were determined to be unreliable and were dropped.**Student Participants**• Two instructors taught both a Control Group and Experimental Group • Control Group: 35 Students • Experimental Group: 40 Students**Posttest- Math 0312**• Looked at the first 31 items on the course final exam • The final exam was found to be reliable.
