## Technology in Mathematics: A Course on Doing Mathematics with the Natural Inclusion of Different Types of TechnologiesSusan Bartonbartons@byuh.eduMathematics BYH-Hawaii U.S.A.
## AbstractThe
preparation of our future mathematics teachers for appropriately using
technology is one of the most important issues facing our teacher education
programs. In response to this immediate need, a course was recently developed
for pre-service secondary level mathematics teachers at an internationally
diverse American university. This paper explains the three-fold purpose
of the course. Objectives for the students included: 1) learning how computer
software and calculators can be used as authentic tools in solving mathematical
problems, 2) to be able to work problems that may not have been accessible
without the use of technology, and 3) to review secondary and tertiary
level mathematics concepts within a new technology-based context. |
