Making Mathematics Come Alive with Technology.
Kimmins, Dovie; Bouldin, Elaine
In order to prepare prospective teachers of secondary school mathematics to effectively guide the teaching and learning process using technology, a new required course was developed at Middle Tennessee State University. Technology has been integrated into mathematics courses in which these preservice teachers are enrolled. This paper discusses the benefits of technology for mathematics education and describes developments in the mathematics curriculum at Middle Tennessee State University. Highlights include: empowering students mathematically; roles of technology in the teaching and learning of mathematics, including (1) mathematical concept and skill development, (2) mathematical problem solving, (3) mathematical reasoning, and (4) mathematical communication; and a three-pronged approach that leads prospective teachers of middle and secondary school mathematics to realize and promote the use of technology. (Contains 12 references.) (AEF)
