High School/College Calculus• Student Age range from 15-20 years old• Pre-requisite skills: – Basic windows software computer familiarity – Established individual profile on Tutoring web site Khan Academy – Successful completion of Trigonometry (Pre- Calculus) – Individually owned scientific (graphing) calculator
Typical Classroom Set Up of the Future• Computer workstations throughout room (at least 1 for every 3 students).• Instructor tools: – SMART board – Smart Response Clicker Technology – Slates – Established profile in the Khan Academy
SMART Board• SMART Board is a interactive white board that uses touch screen ability on a large white board.• SMART Board is connected to the teacher’s computer.• SMART Notebook Math Tools software to create, explore, evaluate, and solve math problems.

S ma rt R e s pons e C l i c k e r Te c h n o l o g y• Use the handheld devices for grading and attendance, – formative assessments and comprehension.• Teachers can poll the class – Divide students into small discussion groups, and then poll them again to see what they learned from one another• Clicker responses can be anonymous – Clickers encourage participation, even from shy students or with sensitive topics• Devices are popular with students, who love the game-like experience. – They love challenging themselves and competing with their classmates. Theyre doing work but its fun.
S ma rt R e s pons e C l i c k e r Te c h n o l o g y• LCD screens are now common• Texting capability – Facilitates open-ended questions and self- paced learning.• Some devices enable students to input their clicker responses via computer.• Others let teachers transmit questions or comments to students collectively or individually via clicker.• Teachers can help those who are struggling or adapt instruction if many are having difficulty.• Also let teachers tag certain questions by skill and assessment standard for review after class.
Slates• eInstruction recently introduced the Mobi View slate, which gives teachers a larger touch screen, centralized control over student devices, and full access to lesson plans, applications, and eInstructions ExamView assessment content library.• The SMART Slate™ wireless slate gives you and your students the freedom to interact with digital content from anywhere in the room. As you use the pen to write on the surface of the wireless slate, your handwriting displays on both your computer screen and the SMART Board interactive whiteboard or a projection screen for all to see.• "Its like embedding a smartphone inside a whiteboard,"• Students work together and learn from each other for a higher level of collaborative learning.
