I really have to question the continued emphasis on Smartboards... if you're a teacher (well, high school teacher at least) I'd strongly recommend you consider investing in a good tablet…

So I've been playing a bit with Google docs in a few classes...1) Grade 8s. A communal document for review... I distributed review questions to each student and they wrote…

MathML Strengthens Digital Math TextsDigital texts are moving beyond simply putting pages on a computer screen.In Kentucky, a small pilot study is demonstrating the benefits of this textbook technology for…

Well, we're into quadratics now. The one section is doing really well incorporating Maple into their learning process -- they fluidly jump back and forth between Maple & OneNote. The…

Well, we've used the Curve Fitting Tool for the past couple of classes. Lesson learned: it's best to be descriptive in your variables because using x and y is not…

Things that immediately pops up....Having them able to use the TEXT to describe their variables and present their solutions neatly. We focused so much on the math work that I…

Well, we did a bit of direct instruction (not Direct Instruction, which is completely different... kinda like variables in poorly designed programming languages) where, in order to lead them through…

Okay... well we made an attempt at Maple 12 today... just a brief introduction to graphing. I deliberately did it by assigning names to the equationsL1:=y=3x+2Then I chose to have…
