*Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.*

—Arthur C Clarke

## Course Information

"The mathematics and computer science program shall include competencies in both subcategories" (PI 34). To achieve this goal, we will use project-based learning to explore technology representations to help students understand mathematical concepts and procedures. These technologies will likely include:

- Graphing calculators
- Programming
- Spreadsheets
- Dynamic geometry software
- Computer algebra systems
- Interactive presentation equipment

More course information is available on D2L.

### Structure

- Weekly assignments focusing on a given technology
- Group technology activity
- Individual technology activity

### Required Materials

- Growth mindset!
- Common Core State Standards-Math
- Graphing calculator (TI-84 recommended)

### Recommendations

- Bring your own internet-connected device.
- Attend the annual WMC conference (in spring!)
- Join professional organizations (look for student memberships):
- National Council of Teachers of Mathematics -- http://www.nctm.org
- Wisconsin Mathematics Council -- http://www.wismath.org

- Become a Math Lab tutor
