The Principles and Standards of School Mathematics outlined by the US based National Council of Teachers of Mathematics explain that incorporating technology is essential in teaching and learning mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and enhances students’ learning.
The Math department at Northbridge International School Cambodia empowers students to use different forms of technology when learning mathematics.
The ability for our students to use technology and understand its influence in solving problems, has enhanced their learning experience and has made math more interactive. Furthermore, lessons are more dynamic and concepts that can be quite analytical and hard to understand become more alive. Our students can engage and investigate them in a more in depth way like never before.
Here are some ways that the math department at NISC has incorporated technology in learning mathematics:
1) In Grade 9 math, students use Desmos an online graphing technology software to better understand linear functions. Desmos enables teachers to develop interactive lessons to further understand the properties of a line. Below is an example on an interactive lesson entitled Polygraph of Lines.
