(1) Use of Internet In a Mathematics Assessment System

– SMAPP (Singapore Mathematics Assessment and Pedagogy Project)

– Assessment for Learning

– More information can be found at SMAPP

– Positive response from teachers and students

(3) Written math exams with Internet Access : A teacher’s perspective on the impact on day to day Math Teaching

– Denmark conducted exams in 2008 to 2010 in which students can use Internet

– For Mathematics, the use of Internet exam is not relevant as students can solve problems easily without using Internet

– However, the pupils are now currently equipped with laptops with CAS (Computer Algebra System) . Teachers use the laptop for classroom teaching.

(4) Identifying Cognitive Appropriate Technological Tasks based on Students’ level of Geometric Thinking

– There are different geometry applets/animations. Teachers need to use them properly

– The teachers can use geometry-related technology tasks for(1) Developing Analysis Dynamic Activities , (2) Developing Abstraction Dynamic Activities (3) Developing Deduction Dynamic Activities. These tasks are based on the the geometry learning as proposed by van Hiele (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Hiele_model)

(5) How to use video in a class?

– As an informative tool

– trigger a formative process about a given mathematical content?

– Teacher must know when to use in class

– http://www.m3.mat.br/ (Website in Brazil)

– Video-least used resource (lack of training for teachers to use video)
