Math Technology

Equity-centered mathematics Technology

Ask these 5 questions

Dimension 1: Inquiry based learning

In what way does the choice of technology give students equitable access to mathematical inquiry, discovery, conjectures, and foster sense-making?

Dimension 2 Authorship and Agency

In what way does the digital tool allow student ownership and authorship to create, represent and share their mathematical thinking to build positive mathematical identities?

Dimension 3: Formative Assessment & Differentiation

In what way does the digital tool used in the lesson allow for formative assessment and differentiation to meet diverse learners’ needs?

Dimension 4: Empowerment Through Collective Thinking

In what way does the use of the digital tool allow for students to collaborate, communicate and build collective knowledge among their peers?

Dimension 5: Amplification of Mathematical and Cognitive Processes

In what way do the features of the digital tool make mathematics concepts visible and amplify cognitive processes?
