Using Interactive Tools
At Mathalicious, we believe that learning is a social process. Everything we create is intended to help teachers engage their students: to ask interesting questions, and to create a classroom culture of curiosity, inquiry, and discourse.
While conversations are the centerpiece of every Mathalicious lesson, technology can play an important role in supporting effective instruction. Mathalicious lessons include a variety of tools, from dynamic graphs to interactive tables, to animations that help students visualize the relationship between a television’s aspect ratio and its screen area. These tools complement the thoughtful questions that characterize Mathalicious lessons, and help students develop an even deeper conceptual understanding of mathematics.
