Exploring Math with Technology: Practices for Secondary Math Teachers

Exploring Math with Technology: Practices for Secondary Math Teachers

English | 2023 | ISBN: 978-1032298375 | 226 Pages | PDF | 22 MB

This timely book provides support for secondary mathematics teachers learning how to enact high-quality, equitable math instruction with dynamic, mathematics-specific technologies.

Using practical advice from their own work as well as from interviews with 23 exceptional technology-using math teachers, the authors develop a vision of teaching with technology that positions all students as powerful doers of mathematics using math-specific technologies (e.g., dynamic graphing and geometry applications, data exploration tools, computer algebra systems, virtual manipulatives). Each chapter includes sample tasks, advice from technology-using math teachers, and guiding questions to help teachers with implementation. The book offers a rich space for secondary math teachers to explore important pedagogical practices related to teaching with technology, combined with broader discussions of changing the narratives about students – emphasizing the mathematics they can do and the mathematics they deserve.

Accompanying online support materials include video vignettes of teachers and students interacting around technology-enhanced tasks in the classroom, as well as examples of more than 30 high-quality technology-enhanced tasks.
