## MathematicsGuidelines | Project Activities | Interactive Projects | Presentations | Related Links ## Project ActivitiesThe mathematics education group is developing a series of instructional
modules to prepare mathematics teachers to use technology appropriately.
Many activities address concepts spanning several years of secondary
content; The activities developed to date utilize the following technologies: ## ExploreMath Activities## Fathom## The Geometer's Sketchpad (version 3)## The Geometer's Sketchpad (version 4)## Global Positioning System## Graphing Calculators## Microsoft Excel## Microscopes and Probes## MicroWorlds (logo)## Digital Cameras## Probability ExplorerThe Sketchpad, Microworlds, and Excel activities do not assume any prior knowledge of the software. They are packaged as collections of activities, with the earlier ones introducing many of the basic commands as needed. Later activities incorporate these basic commands and introduce other commands as well. The graphing calculator activities are not calculator specific, and hence do not include keystroke instructions. Some activities can be completed with any graphing calculator while others require recursion, regression and other specific statistical abilities. |
