Description

Common Core education standards establish a clear set of specific ideas and skills that all students should be able to comprehend at each grade level. In an effort to meet these standards, educators are turning to technology for improved learning outcomes.

Cases on Technology Integration in Mathematics Education provides a compilation of cases and vignettes about the application of technology in the classroom in order to enhance student understanding of math concepts. This book is a timely reference source for mathematics educators, educational technologists, and school district leaders employed in the mathematics education or educational technology fields.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Hand-Held Technologies
  • Interactive Whiteboards
  • Internet-Based Technologies
  • Mathematic Gaming
  • Mobile applications

Reviews and Testimonials

Highly Recommended for K-12 math educators and math education faculty at the university level. It provides thoughtful chapters that challenge the reader to consider how technology is being used in powerful ways to support achievement of the CCSS-M standards. This book should be required reading of all math education majors preparing for math credentials/ teaching certifications.

Editor Polly presents this volume for educators on the use of technology to support mathematics instruction in four sections, each containing several case studies. The first section suggests matches of specific technologies to particular content areas, including algebra, statistics, and geometry. The next discusses the use of technology to more broadly support instructional and conceptual practices. Third, the use for technology for instructional purposes such as through animations, clickers, and games is highlighted. Finally, the utility of technology in helping teachers to both develop and more vividly illustrate mathematical curriculum is demonstrated.
