Using Technology to Enhance Math and Sciences Lessons

The use of technology in classrooms has been a key tool for understanding and learning. According to Pierce and Ball (2009), students‘ attitudes towards math improve when they use technology in classes. They also develop a greater understanding of the subject. This is due to the fact that students are able to experiment with math concepts in a variety of ways, like using calculators to solve problems or online manipulative tools. However, incorporating the appropriate technology into math classes requires a lot of thought and an understanding of how it works.

One of the key benefits of integrating technology in mathematics classes is that teachers are able to find more innovative ways to teach the subject. Some of the most modern digital tools are specifically designed to benefit students‘ visual and modeling power. Software applications, for instance, allow students to build 3D geometric figures of objects such as cones and cubicles in a way that aids them understand the shapes and properties.

The most efficient technology tools also assist students free up their working memory so that they can concentrate on the formulation of problems and model building. They also help students create public records of their thoughts that can be transported, edited and easily shared between classmates and teachers. This method aims to bridge the gap between the informal knowledge of students and the formal structure of mathematical and scientific phenomena.
