An online activity provides instructional strategies that can help students engage in mathematical modeling and autonomous learning.
Digital Learning Routes: An Example of Mathematical Modeling
Salomé Martínez, Flavio Guiñez, and Darío González
Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About
Nicola M. Hodkowski and Carolyn Carhart-Quezada
Different types of open tasks can be used as a tool to promote rigorous student mathematical discourse and considerations for facilitation.
Two Technology Frameworks: Their Use in Lesson Design
Elizabeth B. Harkey, Angela T. Barlow, and Victoria Groves-Scott
The authors used two technology frameworks to design three seventh-grade mathematics lessons, focusing on opportunities to address collaboration, authenticity, or personalization.
Adapt It! Adapting Stories and Technology for Engagement in Geometry
Karen L. Terrell, Dennis J. DeBay, and Valerie J. Spencer
A task to develop and provide access to mathematics for all.
Build It! The Rectangle Game
Theresa Wills, Jennifer Suh, Kate Roscioli, Amanda Guzman, Jennifer Everdale, and Sandra Lee
Discover technology-enhanced, game-based tasks and student generalizations.
The Do Nothing Machine
The Trammel of Archimedes traces an ellipse as the machine’s lever is rotated. Specific measurements of the machine are used to compare the machine’s actions on GeoGebra with the graph of the ellipse and an ellipse formed by the string method.
Using Mathematics to Design a Droid
George J. Roy, Matthew Cunningham, and Kenneth Rafanan
Teachers have the opportunity to make mathematics relevant. We leveraged the popularity of Star Wars to engage students in exploring and connecting two dimensions and three dimensions to careers in toy design.
Algebraic Thinking in the Context of Spatial Visualization
Arsalan Wares and David Custer
This pattern-related problem, appropriate for high school students, involves spatial visualization, promotes geometric and algebraic thinking, and relies on a no-cost computer software program.
Improving Our Criticism of Technology in Mathematics Education
Craig J. Cullen and Joshua T. Hertel
Rather than centering technology, we need to view tools as raw materials that students can use strategically to build mathematical knowledge.
Turning Trucks Into a Meaningful Geometry Exploration
Kate Roscioli and Jennifer Suh
Learn how to engage students in geometry concepts through a real-world task that leverages GeoGebra to provide students with generalization and authorship opportunities.
