YouTube in PreCalculus (John) Students made video presentations of 3rd Quarter Challenge Problems Good point: No class time given up for presentations, can look at them at any time Bad point: Some presentations were short on content and long on multi-media fluff or students simply read their paper.
WolframAlpha in PreCalc (John) Students used website to check homework when textbook did not supply answers. Students used website to help solve Challenge Problems Unfortunately, students often missed the point of problems. The process was more important than just getting an answer.
