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.

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.

Using CODAP to Grow Students’ Probabilistic Reasoning

Patrick Sullivan

Draw on two simulations to introduce compound events and help your class make connections between experimental and theoretical probabilities.

Building Powerful Mathematical Thinkers with dINBs

Courtney K. Baker, Terrie M. Galanti, Kimberly Morrow-Leong, and Tammy Kraft

The Teaching for Robust Understanding framework facilitates online collaborative problem solving with digital interactive notebooks that position all students as doers of mathematics.

Student Engagement with the “Into Math Graph" Tool

Amanda K. Riske, Catherine E. Cullicott, Amanda Mohammad Mirzaei, Amanda Jansen, and James Middleton

We introduce the Into Math Graph tool, which students use to graph how “into" mathematics they are over time. Using this tool can help teachers foster conversations with students and design experiences that focus on engagement from the student’s perspective.

Let's Hit the Target!

Manouchehri Azita, Ozturk Ayse, and Sanjari Azin

In this article we illustrate how one teacher used PhET cannonball simulation as an instructional tool to improve students' algebraic reasoning in a fifth grade classroom. Three instructional phases effective to implementation of simulation included: Free play, Structured inquiry and, Synthesizing ideas.

Using Scratch Programming to Explore Coordinates

Erell Germia and Nicole Panorkou

We present a Scratch task we designed and implemented for teaching and learning coordinates in a dynamic and engaging way. We use the 5Es framework to describe the students' interactions with the task and offer suggestions of how other teachers may adopt it to successfully implement Scratch tasks.

Technology Continues to Evolve

Over the past 100 years, technology has evolved in unprecedented fashion. Calculators, computers, and smart phones have become ubiquitous, yet school mathematics experiences for many children still remain without many powerful technological tools for the exploration of mathematics. We consider the evolution of some tools as we imagine a future.
