Training non-math majors in the TI innovator system to use with deaf/hard -of-hearing students
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study is to discover if educators that are not mathematically inclined can successfully use mathematic technology in the classroom. To test thisspeculation, TWU students who expressed no interest in mathematics were trained in the TI Innovator System. The TI Innovator System is a modern graphing calculator that has the capabilities to code and perform specific functions. Users are able to make the rover light up, produce sounds, move, draw shapes, detect motion, etc. Questions addressed include, "Did the non‐math educator successfully teach a student to replicate a function on the TI Innovator System?," "Were the studentssuccessful in their use of TI Innovator System?," and "Were the math majors more successful in their use of the TI Innovator System than the non‐math students?"
