||Using a hands-on
approach, this partnership opportunity provides teachers of grades 5 through
10 a thorough understanding of technological applications appropriate for the
mathematics classroom. TIME (Technology In Mathematics Education)
program highlights include the use of application software programs like
Geometer's Sketchpad, Microworlds, spreadsheets, and the Internet as resources
for teaching and learning mathematical topics such as Number Sense, Geometry,
Data Analysis, probability, and Algebra. Workshops model problem solving
environments using authentic applications of Internet technology and tool
software. Teachers exchange, compare, plot and graph real time and
historical data from sites around the world. Lesson activities have
direct linkages to the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.
Participants are eligible to receive up to three graduate credits from St.
Peter's College in Jersey City. Seven full day workshops will be held at
Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. The membership fee for
the TIME program is $1500 for one participant, and
$1000 for each additional participant per district.
Software and Internet Resources for Mathematical Problem Solving:
- Get a
hands-on opportunity to use a variety of software environments
that engage students in problem solving.
- Setting Up
Appropriate Environments for Computer-based Mathematical Problem
- Discover how
to effectively run collaborative activities using the one computer
station, classroom lab, and computer lab.
the Curriculum with Technology Based Activities:
activities and learn what makes them not only engaging, but also
illuminates mathematical aims of the lesson.
- Using the
Internet to Support Classroom Instruction: Exploring Real Time
compare, plot and graph real time data such as weather conditions
from sites around the world. Learn how data from the Internet can
be analyzed by software tools.
Strategies and Discourse in the One Computer and Classroom Lab
look examples of Internet-Based Collaborative Projects appropriate
for both middle and high school students.
- Methods for
Assessing Computer-Based Learning in Problem Solving
assessment models appropriate for technology learning environments
will be presented in the context of classroom activities.
and Presentations of Teacher's Achievements:
present examples of how they will implement what they have learned
in this workshop series.
