Engaging Developmental Students with Technology Mark Clark Palomar College Slide 2 Using Technology for Engagement Topic Starters -- Videos Animation and Demonstration Websites Textbook and Instructor Websites Cengage Learning Online Homework System Slide 3 Topic Motivators There are many resources available on the internet to help you motivate a topic or chapter. YouTube Math in the Movies Rena Patrello Videos Slide 4 Topic Starters There are several videos on YouTube to use as topic starters Math in the Real World http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFRTgr7MfWw&feature =relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFRTgr7MfWw&feature =related Beginning AlgebraIntermediate AlgebraBeginning AlgebraIntermediate Algebra Liberal Arts MathCollege AlgebraLiberal Arts MathCollege Algebra TrigonometryProbability & StatisticsTrigonometryProbability & Statistics PrecalculusCalculus IPrecalculusCalculus I Calculus IICalculus IIICalculus IICalculus III General Interest Linear Equations http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_U93-l5Z-w Slide 5 Topic Starters There are several movies that refer to math and can be used as topic starters Math in the Movies http://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmo vies/ Lines Caddy Shack http://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/swf/caddyshack.htmlhttp://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/swf/caddyshack.html Long Division Mad Mad World http://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/swf/madmadworld.htmlhttp://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/swf/madmadworld.html Powers of 3-- Pay It Forward http://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/swf/payitforward.html Word Problems -- Little Big League http://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/swf/league.htmlhttp://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/swf/league.html Least Common Multiple Father of the Bride http://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/swf/fatherbride.htmlhttp://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/swf/fatherbride.html Note other movie links at the bottom Slide 6 Rena Petrello Videos http://www.cengage.com/community/petrello or http://www.cengage.com/community/kaufmann http://www.cengage.com/community/petrello http://www.cengage.com/community/kaufmann DVD Powers of 10 Coins Solve Uniform Motion Problems Dimension of Garden Slide 7 What Have You Found or Used? Have you used videos or topic motivators in your courses? Share with those at your table. Be prepared to share one great idea with the group. Slide 8 Technology Demonstrations There are many resources available on the internet to help you demonstrate a concept visually. Wolfram Alpha Demonstrations Online Interactive Modules Math Open Reference Slide 9 Technology Demonstrations http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/ Must download Free Mathematica Player System of Equations Downloaded version Cartesian Coordinates Exercise Downloaded version Lines: Slope-Intercept Downloaded version Greatest Fenced Area Downloaded version Slide 10 Online Interactive Modules National Library of Virtual Manipulatives http://nlvm.usu.edu/ http://nlvm.usu.edu/ Algebra Tiles: Factor x 2 + 7x + 6 http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_1 89_g_1_t_2.html?open=activities&from=to pic_t_2.htmlhttp://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_1 89_g_1_t_2.html?open=activities&from=to pic_t_2.html Lines Plotter http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_3 32_g_4_t_2.html?from=topic_t_2.htmlhttp://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_3 32_g_4_t_2.html?from=topic_t_2.html Algebra Balance Scales http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_2 01_g_4_t_2.html?open=instructions&from =topic_t_2.htmlhttp://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_2 01_g_4_t_2.html?open=instructions&from =topic_t_2.html Slide 11 Algebra Tiles Algebra Tiles: Factor x 2 + 7x + 6 http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_189_g_1_t_2.htm l?open=activities&from=topic_t_2.htmlhttp://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_189_g_1_t_2.htm l?open=activities&from=topic_t_2.html Bring up the Interactive Algebra Tiles Explain How They Work Have students tell you what to choose Have them brainstorm on an appropriate rectangle combination Slide 12 Textbook Websites and Online Homework There are many resources available on the textbook websites and in online homework platforms to promote students conceptual development Textbook Websites Online Homework: WebAssign Slide 13 Textbook Websites and Resources There are many resources available on the instructor websites and WebAssign.

Kaufmann, Karen L. Schwitters, Instructor Website: Web Explorations Algebra SSO: http://login.cengage.com/ssohttp://login.cengage.com/sso Web Explorations: Algebra Math Anxiety Algebra Facts 2-D Grapher Slide 15 Enhanced WebAssign http://www.webassign.com Why It Makes a Difference Direct correlation with the book and tutorials in place with the problem sets This semester a student commented that she liked the master it because it stepped her through the process before she tried it on her own. Students watch the videos and work more problems than I assign. Students have multiple attempts so they try harder for the perfect 10! Slide 16 WebAssign: Easy to Assign Exercises taken directly from Brooks/Cole texts Multiple textbooks can be used Links to book pages (READ IT) Videos to accompany specific concept (WATCH IT) Step-by-step tutorials emphasizing both technique practice AND concept mastery Accuracy and multiple representation checking systems Slide 17 WebAssign: Easy to Manage Resources can be attached Everything is in one place for students Personalized Study Plan can be customized Conditional Release Options for self-paced courses Content can be blocked until students have mastered the content preceding it.
