21st Century Math Tools
The Role of Technology
" The field of mathematics education has changed greatly due to technology. Educational technology can facilitate simple computation and the visualization of mathematics situations and relationships, allowing students to better comprehend mathematical concepts in practice."
The Mathematics Framework adopted by state of CA, Nov. 2013
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments & critique the
reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
6. Attend to precision.
7. Look for and make use of structure.
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
"It is expected that students will be able to integrate technology tools into their mathematical work. These tools might include pencil and paper, concrete models, a ruler, protractor, a calculator, a spreadsheet, a computer algebra system, a statistical package or dynamic geometry software. "

Desmos Tour and Account Creation
1. set up account
2. tour sliders, tables, retrictions, regressions
3. students can create, email, embed and print graphs
4. Teacher Activities: https://teacher.desmos.com

8 Mathematical Practices
How are you using technology?
Integrating technology means a change in a pedagogical approach.
Greater access does not mean greater success.
Teaching a concept the same way with technology has no impact on a students' learning.
1. Concepts and Procedures:
Students can explain and apply mathematical concepts and interpret and carry out mathematical procedures with precision and fluency.
2. Problem Solving:
Students can solve a range of complex well- posed problems in pure and applied mathematics, making productive use of knowledge and problem solving strategies
3. Communicating Reasoning:
Students can clearly and precisely construct viable arguments to support their own reasoning and critique the reasoning of others.
4. Modeling and Data Analysis:
Students can analyze complex, real world scenarios and can construct and use mathematical models to solve problems.
