Trajectories of Mathematics and Technology Education Pointing to Engineering Design
Daugherty, Jenny L.; Reese, George C.; Merrill, Chris
Journal of Technology Studies, v36 n1 p46-52 Spr 2010
A brief examination and comparison of mathematics and technology education provides the background for a discussion of integration. In particular, members of each field have responded to the increasing pressures to better prepare students for the technologically rich, globally competitive future. Approaches based within each discipline are varied across curriculum and instructional strategies. However, when examining the disciplines' historical paths, there are important similarities to consider in determining how best to affect student learning in both mathematics and technology education. The authors contend that engineering design is the appropriate contextual area for integrating mathematics in technology education.
