Technology in Mathematics and Science Created and Presented by: Kari Busard Dana Sarallo Kelli SpeckanTenikaFowers
Top Concepts Spreadsheets This helps students carryout the what if problem solving. Graphing calculators This gives students hands-on practice in solving mathematical problems. Interactive Geometry Software. This particular software makes abstracts thoughts clearer and easier to understand. Reasoning and skill-building software This software helps to increase student's sub-skills while developing logic and comprehension.
Top Scientific Concepts The Globe Program This web based program offers opportunities for doing authentic science activities. Digital imaging tools and simulations This technology allows simulation to slow down or speed up processes for easier observation when deals with scientific experiments.
Computer Accessories Scan different pictures of anything to do with math or science and project them onto the screen for students to see and/or identify Video tape different animals and have the students watch what was recorded Take pictures of certain items to show students scale, measurements and demonstrating perspective Have students take their own pictures on a certain topic that has to do with science and then put together a poster on the topic
Communication & Problem Solving Students can use the Internet when researching a specific topic A teacher can communicate with parents through e-mail if needed Interactive white boards could help students solve problems as a class Class websites can help students to know what is going on, expected of them, and on assignments
Word Processing Tools Students can use spreadsheets while gathering data for Science Students can use Microsoft Word when typing up results on a Science project or experiment Students can use spreadsheets to graph information for Math Students can find percentages using a spreadsheet in either Math or Science
Multimedia Tools MyMathLab:provides video lectures, animations, links to other sites, and interactive practice. Math World: Comprehensive, interactive encyclopedia of mathematics. Definitions, diagrams and explanations of ideas, concepts and terms. The Planetary Society:Ableto make data collections and easy to collect information Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLSE) helps students visualize and understand earth
Special Needs Learning Online calculators and Converters Webmath- provides how-to help and support for students struggling with all levels of math Digital Blue QX5 Digital Microscope- powerful microscope that attaches to the computer. Students unable to access lenses, he/she observe on computer screen. Brain Pop- helpful for students who can’t read text books.
Social Responsibility The teacher should only allow specific websites that are safe and monitored for students. These websites are the only ones students can access, and the teacher will watch over every computer.
Online Learning for Science The Genetic Engineering MiniQuest This Webquestis a short project that allows students to research cell information on different websites. This will familiarize them with the genetic engineering website. Overall, I think this is a fun short project URL
Online Learning for Science Plant Micropropagation This Webquest project is a long term project with many observations to see a conclusion. This is a great project that will allow for students to make many observations as everyone will have a different perception of the organism. URL
Online Learning for Math Understanding money and current currency exchange In this WebQuest, students explore the nature of money, how monetary systems evolve, and how different cultures value money. They also use an online currency converter to learn how foreign exchange rates work. URL
Online Learning for Math Track your family's water usage Allowing students to calculate how much water is being used by their family. A different and good project to get students involved with technology and guessing those numbers. The directions are easy to follow. URL
Instructional Software MS Excel can be used to teach management processes and enhance problem solving skills in mathematics. Drill and practice software can be used to help students receive feed back on examples given by the instructor. Instructional games designed to motivate learning. Simulations (real or imagined) system designs to teach students how to create their own sequence for using information.
Tele-Communicaton Computer-based and online learning modules Video learning modules Podcasts Gizmos offers 450 interactive math and science lessons for grades 3-12 Explore Learning Learner.org - A comprehensive guide to math and science lessons. Video lessons are provided for a plethora of topics. Learner.org
Rubrics Rubrics for Teachers - This is a great resource for rubrics and rubric design. Pre-design rubrics allow teachers a solid foundation and starting point, of not the entire lesson rubric. teAchnolgoy - For a small fee, teachers have access to pre-made rubrics and a rubric maker. Rubistar - A comprehensive rubric maker that is easy to use. The best in my opinion. iRubric - made rubrics and a rubric maker.
