"Why and How To Use Technology in Math

Technology motivates students to learn, complete tasks that might bore them with pencil and paper, provides creative ways to solve problems, and offers a risk free learning environment for students to explore the world of mathematics. It encourages students to become active learners with a quest for knowledge and to assume responsibility for their own learning.

Mathematical concepts are understood in several different ways... using pictures, non-linguistic representation, interactive math tools, graphs, colored squares, multimedia presentations, and number lines. It enables students to use a variety of media and formats to apply, evaluate, synthesize and communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences.

Interactive math tools should be used in the classroom because they are tools that provides concrete ways to explore abstract concepts, enhance success for visual learners, promote higher-order thinking skills and deepens understanding."
