In this course, participants will explore new technologies that can be used in elementary math instruction in kindergarten through sixth grade. Participants will review NCTM and state standards and examine the ways in which tools like virtual manipulatives, calculators, spreadsheet programs, online data sources, and applets can support these goals.  In particular, the course will address ways in which technology can support elementary algebra, geometry, number and operation, and data analysis standards. Participants will end the course with a lesson plan that integrates new technologies into instruction in their own classrooms.
