Teaching Math Through Computers
Teaching math through computers is an easy way to engage students in the theories of math. Just because mathematics has been studied and discussed by scholars of ancient times, it doesn't mean that it has to be taught in an ancient way. The current generation is a techsavvy group that has been raised using computers so therefore incorporating technology into the classroom is a natural progression.


As technology evolves, so do the many ways of teaching math through computers. If you are looking for ways to use graphing calculators, we have an entire page dedicated to that subject. This page will focus on the The Geometer's Sketchpad, a dynamic geometry software that will transform your classroom. We have also inlcuded links to helpful computer applets that help students to learn visually through the computer.
