Using Creative Technologies in Elementary Math
The Using Creative Technologies in Elementary Math guide provides articles, samples, and lessons to help you find new ideas and approaches that will work for your elementary students. Math is about numbers, but it can also be drawn, manipulated, interpreted, measured, and constructed.
In the Using Creative Technologies in Elementary Math guide you can find:
- A creative approach to building number sense and problem-solving
- Connecting math to art
- Creating visual representations of mathematic concepts
The guide includes lesson plans where:
- students practice counting through the creation of a holiday counting book.
- students compose images from shapes, describe their composition, and create their own version of the book, The Shape of Things.
- students explore length, width, perimeter, and surface area, convert measurements, and work with 2-D representations of 3-D objects.
- students create original artwork and manipulate images to demonstrate understanding of line symmetry.
- students improve multiplication skills by skip counting and creating multiplication word problems.
- The strategies and lessons in this guide will help you engage students in mathematical thinking through creative technology tools.
