Tools + Tech = Math Success!
As a Math AIS teacher, I currently teach the students who do not meet the state standards or grade level expectations. My students are successful when they are given the opportunity to use manipulatives to explore math concepts. They are highly motivated by technology. The students will use a variety of computer-based programs to practice math skills. Some of the programs include Nearpod, PowerPoint, Kahoot, Quizizz, and Plickers. These programs allow teacher to include slide shows, videos, web content, and 3D images. Students will use PhET Interactive Simulations (on Nearpod) to discover and explore math concepts in a concrete and visual format. These hands-on activities provide real-world experiences for the students. Students can also take Virtual Field Trips through Nearpod. These technology features enable students to make connections among various Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) concepts.
