The Internet: A Powerful Resource for High School Mathematics

The Internet has the potential to provide educators with resources for professional development and curricular reform. Through this technological tool, teachers and students can communicate with other classes, businesses, universities and research laboratories. The Internet enables easy access to mathematical software, databases, lesson plans and student work from across North America and around the world. With the click of a mouse, teachers can retrieve information or computer software as they plan and carry out daily instruction. This session will present examples of how the Internet is being used by high school mathematics teachers. Examples will be provided for algebra, geometry, statistics and calculus. Handouts.
