Cases on Technology Integration in Mathematics Education
Polly, Drew, Ed.
Common Core education standards establish a clear set of specific ideas and skills that all students should be able to comprehend at each grade level. In an effort to meet these standards, educators are turning to technology for improved learning outcomes. "Cases on Technology Integration in Mathematics Education" provides a compilation of cases and vignettes about the application of technology in the classroom in order to enhance student understanding of math concepts. This book is a timely reference source for mathematics educators, educational technologists, and school district leaders employed in the mathematics education or educational technology fields. Following a foreword by Chandra Hawley Orrill and preface by Drew Polly, this book is organized into the following sections and chapters: Section 1: Leveraging Technology to Teach Specific Content: (1) Leveraging Dynamic and Dependable Spreadsheets Focusing on Algebraic Thinking and Reasoning; (Margaret L. Niess); (2) A Case Study of Primary School Students' Use of a Dynamic Statistics Software Package for Analyzing and Interpreting Data (Irene Kleanthous and Maria Meletiou-Mavrotheris); (3) Local Lotto: Mathematics and Mobile Technology to Study the Lottery (Vivian Lim, Erica Deahl, Laurie Rubel, and Sarah Williams); (4) Bringing Dynamic Geometry to Three Dimensions: The Use of SketchUp in Mathematics Education (Nicholas H. Wasserman); (5) Playing with Perpendicular Lines: The Case of Laura (Douglas A. Lapp and Dennis St. John); and (6) Students' Experiences Composing and Decomposing Two-Dimensional Shapes in First and Second Grade Mathematics Classrooms (Drew Polly, Trisha Hill, and Tabitha Vuljanic). Section 2: Leveraging Technology to Support Mathematical Practices: (7) Using New Technologies to Engage and Support English Language Learners in Mathematics Classrooms (Robert Pritchard, Susan O'Hara, and Jeff Zwiers); (8) The Port Lesson: Grade 5 Mathematics Modeling for a Local Context (Charles B. Hodges, Edie R. Hipchen, and Traci Newton); (9) What Does Technology Bring to the Common Core Mathematical Practices? (Marshall Lassak); (10) Utilizing Technology to Engage in Statistical Inquiry in Light of the Standards for Mathematical Practice (Christine Browning and Dustin Owen Smith); and (11) Using Dynamic Geometry Software to Engage Students in the Standards for Mathematical Practice: The Case of Ms. Lowe (Milan Sherman, Carolyn McCaffrey James, Amy Hillen, and Charity Cayton). Section 3: Examples of Technological Tools to Support Teaching and Learning: (12) Integrating Multimedia Animations to Support Common Core State Standards in Mathematics Classrooms (Jesus Trespalacios, Karen Trujillo, and Lida J. Uribe-Flórez); (13) Teaching Fundamental Math Concepts: There's an App for That ... Or is There? (Jennifer Wall and Michael P. Rogers); (14) Interactive Whiteboards: Preparing Secondary Mathematics Teachers to Avoid Catch-22 (Tracy Goodson-Espy and Lisa Poling); (15) Young Children, Mathematics, and Coding: A Low Floor, High Ceiling, Wide Walls Environment (George Gadanidis); (16) Leveraging Interactive Clickers as a Tool for Formative Assessment (Drew Polly, Elizabeth Rodgers, and Melissa Little); (17) Mathematics Gaming in Early Childhood: Describing Teacher Moves for Effective and Appropriate Implementation (Alejandra Salinas and Chu Ly); and (18) Using the AMC Anywhere Web-Based Assessment System to Examine Primary Students' Understanding of Number Sense (Christie Sullivan Martin and Drew Polly). Section 4: Leveraging Technology to Support Mathematics Education Courses and Programs: (19) Teaching and Learning the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics with Web 2.0 Tools (Jeffrey Hall, Lucy Bush, and William Lacefield); (20) Contextualizing Algebraic Word Problems through Story Using Technology (Terri L. Kurz, Barbara Bartholomew, Amanda Sibley, and Scott Fraser); (21) The Synergism of Mathematical Thinking and Computational Thinking (Gerard Rambally); and (22) Application of Information and Communication Technology to Create E-Learning Environments for Mathematics Knowledge Learning to Prepare for Engineering Education (Tianxing Cai). A compilation of references, an about the contributors section, and an index are also included.
