InterMath[14]--Professional and Cognitive Development through Problem Solving with Technology
Glazer, Evan
InterMath, a five-year effort funded through the National Science Foundation, is a statewide Internet-based project with the goal of designing and implementing a series of workshops and ongoing support programs that feature contemporary applications of technology and mathematics pedagogy in the middle grades. Technology is used to deliver the curriculum through Web-based materials and to explore the mathematics using cognitive tools such as dynamic geometry software, spreadsheets, and graphing calculators. Objectives of InterMath include: strengthening the middle school teacher's knowledge and understanding of mathematics; providing a support structure (online and in-school) to aid teachers in implementing and integrating technology tools for doing mathematics; and providing a structured in-service curriculum that follows Georgia's Quality Core Curriculum objectives as well as reform efforts expressed in publications by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. InterMath is a collaborative effort among the University of Georgia, Georgia Institute of Technology, and nine regional technology centers in the state of Georgia. (Contains 39 references.)
