>This spring the mathematics department at Shenandoah
>University's Continuing Education office will be offering
>Ed/Math 503 Calculator Mathematics over the Internet. This
>course, offering 3 graduate credits in either math or education, provides
>several advantages for participants: flexibility of enrollment time,
>completion of lessons at one's own pace, and a strong system of
>instructional support.
>Teachers will learn the functions and capabilities of the Texas
>Instruments TI-82 graphing calculator and how to incorporate
>its use in the classroom. Although this class is geared toward
>the middle and high school teacher, the methods and
>techniques may be adapted to lower grades and calculators
>other than the TI-82.
>Participants will initially be mailed two instructional videos
>and workbook. During the semester participants will be given
>12 weekly lessons that can be obtained from Shenandoah
>University's home page if you have a web browser such as
>Netscape or Lynx or they can be e-mailed to you. As
>participants complete the lesson activities and e-mail them
>back, they will be building a file of calculator activities
>which will be distributed on disk to all participants at the end
>of the class.
>A bulletin board available only to class participants will also
>be established. A tutor whose services will be available
>through e mail and phone will be assigned to each student.
>Students may work at their own pace. Cost of the class is
>$375 plus $50 materials fee. Class will begin January 15th.
