MTHED 427 Teaching Mathematics in Technology-Intensive Environments (3)
Students should expect to learn something about each of several common types of mathematics software, new things about secondary school mathematics, and a lot about how to make decisions about how to use technology as an effective mathematics teacher. Students will also use communication software (e.g., word processors, e-mail, PowerPoint) not as objects of our discussion but in simple ways to generate and share products, assignments, and ideas.
The course has a significant lab component. Students will be assessed based on written assignments, lesson plans, oral presentations, class participation, and examinations. The course is offered each fall and spring semester with an approximate enrollment of 20 students per semester. Students must enroll concurrently in MTHED 411.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
