Introduction:

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) advocates the appropriate use of technology in mathematics classrooms. There is ample evidence to suggest that technology can lead to improved student learning. Technology usage can also allow students and teachers to address real-world mathematics problems, as well as focus more on concepts and less on computational minutia.

For this task, you will provide a lesson plan that incorporates student-centered technology to enhance student creativity, learning, and understanding in solving real-world mathematics problems.

Task:

A. Provide a lesson plan for your classroom. Include the following in your lesson plan:

1. A real-world mathematics problem

2. A student-centered technology to help students solve the problem in part A1

B. Explain how the technology from the lesson plan could enhance student learning and understanding in solving real-world mathematics problems.

1. Explain how technology from the lesson plan could limit student learning and understanding in solving real-world mathematics problems.

a. Explain how to overcome this limitation to increase student learning and understanding.

C. Explain one way the technology from the lesson plan could enhance student creativity in solving real-world mathematics problems.

1. Explain one way the technology from the lesson plan could limit student creativity in solving real-world mathematics problems.

a. Explain one way to overcome this limitation to increase student creativity.
