This activity shows how technology can be used for K-2 students to practice math concepts. Students in the lesson practice addition and subtraction facts to increase their speed and accuracy. They monitor their own learning while becoming competent in using the keyboard.

**Fractions/Grids/Perimeter/Area/Scale Drawings**

Elementary students in this activity use grid paper to design a view of a luxury hotel using AppleWorks or Microsoft Word and Excel. Students will understand that fractions are parts of a whole. By solving real-world problems, students will have concrete symbolic representations of fractions.

First grade students use KidPix software to better understand fact families. They develop fact families independently and solve simple addition and multiplication problems.

K-2 students use AppleWorks technology to extend, generalize, recognize, and write a variety of patterns.

**Cross-curricular Activity With Science. Scale Drawings/Budgets**

Technology is used to study rockets in a middle school classroom. Students develop rocket building companies and then design, draw to scale, and build a bottle rocket within a specified budget. Technology is used to simulate and evaluate the rocket’s flight. Students then launch their rockets and discuss cost analysis of each group’s project.

In this 3-5 classroom, technology provided by the textbook publisher is used to practice mathematics skills. Students watch tutorials and practice concepts based on individual readiness.

**Cross-curricular Activity With Science. Data Collection and Analysis/Graphing**

Students in this middle school class use technology to learn about acids and bases. They use math skills to evaluate cost effectiveness of one form of antacid over another.

**Cross-curricular Activity With Science. Graphs/Tables**

Technology is used in a middle school class to investigate ways to diffuse or redirect hurricanes before they become destructive.

**Cross-curricular Activity With Marketing: Tables/Graphs**

High school students use technology to complete market research projects. Students analyze data and draw conclusions. They use critical thinking skills to take a concept from an idea and make it real.

Project based learning technology is used by high school students to understand different ways to represent numbers in the real world and use their measurements to achieve precision and accuracy.

Students in grades 3 – 5 use technology to practice adding and subtracting fractions.

Students write detailed scripts describing procedures for working with fractions and decimals. Then they produce podcasts showcasing their work. The students in the video are in fifth grade, but this activity could be used at any level.
