Addressing Mathematics Literacy through Technology, Innovation, Design, and Engineering
Litowitz, Len S.
Technology Teacher, v69 n1 p19-22 Sep 2009
In an era when so much emphasis is being placed on the high-stakes standardized testing of fundamental subjects such as reading, writing, and math, it makes sense to demonstrate the role technology educators play in developing such fundamental knowledge and skills in youth. While the author believes that technology education contributes to the development of all fundamental skills, this article addresses the contributions that technology, innovation, design, and engineering subject matter plays in the development of students' mathematical skills.
