Technology Tools for Thinking and Reasoning about Probability

Teachers will investigate some mathematics topics common to middle school curricula within the theme of probability. In this context we will explore the Math Tools digital library and several software tools that contribute in some way to mathematical understanding, problem solving, reflection and discussion.

[Note: We originally developed and offered this workshop under the Leadership Development for Technology Integration: Developing an Effective NSDL Teacher Workshop Model grant.]

This is a community-facilitated workshop. It is not a course and, therefore, no instructor will be present. A Math Forum facilitator monitors the workshop to respond to technical questions. We rely on a critical mass of participation from those who have registered so that there are active discussions resulting in a successful workshop experience for everyone.


  • use online collaborative learning tools and the extensive resources and experience of the Math Forum community
  • experience the flexibility of anytime, anywhere online learning
  • become accustomed to an online professional development environment

Continuing Education Credits: Participants who successfully complete the workshop may request 1.5 Continuing Education credits (fifteen contact hours) from Drexel University for a fee of $25 to cover administrative costs. Note: It is always best for you to check with your Local Education Agency regarding whether the CEUs will be accepted/recognized.

To successfully complete the workshop participants will:

  • spend 2-3 hours a week on the online tasks
  • participate in each of the online discussions
  • complete all six weeks of the workshop
  • submit responses to each of the Technology Problems of the Week (tPoWs) used in this workshop

When: No sessions are currently scheduled.

Please email me with any questions.
