Bringing Reality into the Classroom
Heck, Andre
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, v28 n4 p164-179 Dec 2009
Technology offers ample opportunities to bring reality into the classroom. Students and teachers nowadays have many tools to work in an authentic way with real data in mathematics and science education. However, much research and development are still needed to create a consistent learning trajectory out of the many exciting single activities. Some examples are presented, in particular with regard to video and image analysis, modelling and simulation. In addition, authentic research projects of secondary school students are discussed.
