In past years, my students have used computers to do research projects, or to complete online assignments on Khan Academy or the assessments on the textbook’s website. Just recently they completed a research project about the Golden Ratio, where they had to complete this project in four different components. Aside from researching and investigating the Golden Ratio as a math concept, they had to also create an English essay about the role of the Golden Ratio in the beauty, Golden Ratio and its role in the human body and DNA, and the Golden Ratio during the industrial revolution.Also, I would like to incorporate more technology into my lessons and utilize online assessment tools that would possibly motivate my students to succeed. Unfortunately, our school is now 20% beyond capacity, which means more and more competition for our limited number of computers. Further diminishing our computer time is the fact that, though they come with no additional funding, standardized tests like MAPs, Accuplacer, and ACCESS tests require computers. The MCAS, too, is moving in that direction.   Additional computers will not only allow students to continue doing research projects, but will also offer them some time familiarize themselves with the technical part of mathematics such as graphing, transforming, effects of changing the slope of a line etc.
