K-12 Partnership
Technology In Mathematics Education 
  Using a hands-on approach, this partnership opportunity provides teachers of grades 5 through 10 a thorough understanding of technological applications appropriate for the mathematics classroom.  TIME (Technology In Mathematics Education) program highlights include the use of application software programs like Geometer's Sketchpad, Microworlds, spreadsheets, and the Internet as resources for teaching and learning mathematical topics such as Number Sense, Geometry, Data Analysis, probability, and Algebra.  Workshops model problem solving environments using authentic applications of Internet technology and tool software.  Teachers exchange, compare, plot and graph real time and historical data from sites around the world.  Lesson activities have direct linkages to the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.  Participants are eligible to receive up to three graduate credits from St. Peter's College in Jersey City.  Seven full day workshops will be held at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ.  The membership fee for the TIME program is $1500 for one participant, and $1000 for each additional participant per district.

WORKSHOPS:
  • Exploring Software and Internet Resources for Mathematical Problem Solving:
    • Get a hands-on opportunity to use a variety of software environments that engage students in problem solving.
  • Setting Up Appropriate Environments for Computer-based Mathematical Problem Solving: 
    • Discover how to effectively run collaborative activities using the one computer station, classroom lab, and computer lab.
  • Personalizing the Curriculum with Technology Based Activities: 
    • Examine activities and learn what makes them not only engaging, but also illuminates mathematical aims of the lesson.
  • Using the Internet to Support Classroom Instruction: Exploring Real Time Data: 
    • Exchange, compare, plot and graph real time data such as weather conditions from sites around the world. Learn how data from the Internet can be analyzed by software tools.
  • Effective Strategies and Discourse in the One Computer and Classroom Lab Environments: 
    • Participants look examples of Internet-Based Collaborative Projects appropriate for both middle and high school students.
  • Methods for Assessing Computer-Based Learning in Problem Solving Environments: 
    • Several assessment models appropriate for technology learning environments will be presented in the context of classroom activities.
  • Culmination and Presentations of Teacher's Achievements:
    • Participants present examples of how they will implement what they have learned in this workshop series.
