He concluded:
“After completing this technology research with my classes, I feel that technology helped my students better understand the concepts related to probability. There was a 5% increase in test scores and I believe that is due to the use of handheld technology.”
Students Achieve More in Algebra 3-4 with TI Graphing
The researcher feels when teaching probability, first there must be a basic understanding of dice, playing cards or coins using manipulatives, then a movement into handheld technology for large samples. Students had a deeper understanding of the whole experimental probability idea when the manipulatives were used first.
“The addition of technology in my class didn’t necessarily benefit the A or B students, but it did help the C and D students understand the topics much better. With the use of technology more students are interested in mathematics, and anything that gets students interested in mathematics is good for education.”
