Mathematical Patterns as they Relate to the Real World Through the Use of Technology
Patterns are one of the most important ideas studied in all disciplines. We are now recognizing the connection between biology and mathematics and how patterns discovered in math, for example, are directly related to the way viruses regenerate themselves.
With the addition of new, advanced technology and Internet access, students from ninth grade through twelfth grade in all levels of Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus and Calculus will examine the extent to which patterns exist in the “real world” and the mathematics involved in them.
This grant will provide the installation of a SMART Board with speakers and a mounted projector. In addition, it will provide the classroom with graphing calculators.
