Use of calculators/Graphic Calculators• Saves time.• More realistic.• Exploration• sense-making with multiple representations.• Development of flexible strategies.• Mathematical meaning and concepts.(Burrill et al., 2002; Ellington, 2003):
Using Graphics software It is easier to see how the variable m in f(x) = m x represents a rate of change when the function is graphed and students can explore the connection between m and the gradient (slope) of the line.(Roschelle et al., 2007).
When teachers use technology to introduce theconcept of the equation of a straight line (y = k x +m), the teaching will be different compared to anordinary introduction.
The students will be able to easily investigate how different values for theparameters will affect the graph of the function.
When students develop presentation it develops their creativity and communication skills
Learning materials that are enhanced with various media such assound, narration, video, animation, graphics etc. provide learnerschoices to enhance their different intelligence or learning styles .If designed and implemented properly, ICT-supported education can promote the acquisition of the knowledge and 21st century skills Creativity, critical thinking ,Communication & problem solving.
