The Role of Technology

  • Helps students uncover the math, understand and solve problems
    • Provides multiple ways to model/represent the math of the problem
    • Fosters visualization of the problem situation
    • Removes the tedium and allows students to focus on the ideas, to explore, to play "what if?"
    • Facilitates pattern discovery
    • Makes richer mathematics accessible to more children
    • Motivates students
  • Helps students communicate the results of their learning
    • Revisability
    • Greater variety
  • Provides a source of rich problems and real data
  • Allows for a variety of simulations that model real events
