Top 10 Technology Tools for Math 2008

1. Jing gives students and instructors the ability to capture an image of any graph or equation they see on their screen and share it anywhere else (message boards, emails, papers, digital assignments). Using Jing you can also record videos of up to 5 minutes in length. [Free, Mac/PC] Not sure how to use Jing? Check out the tutorials at the end of this post. 2. Wolfram Demonstrations provides close to 3,000 interactive demonstrations on mathematics. Students and instructors can play with demonstrations by downloading Mathematica Player. Demonstrations can be written by anyone with a copy of Mathematica and are reviewed before they become part of the Demonstrations Project. [Free, Mac/PC] 3. WebAssign is a publisher-independent site for online homework. It was designed originally for physics and does a particularly good job of handling the problems unique to learning math-based content. Publishers work with WebAssign to create online homework for their texts. [$ for students, PC/Mac] Note: You can write your own problems for WebAssign, in which case, there would be no cost for students. WeBWorK is also worth a mention here for the more technically-inclined. 4. WizIQ provides a platform to easily hold online office hours. You have the option of audio and video on both ends, multiple users, interactive whiteboard, and file upload. Sessions are recorded and can be accessed for 30 days. [Free, Mac/PC] 5. Windows...

WebAssign GraphPad

Every semester, online homework systems get a little better. This fall, WebAssign rolled out a new feature called GraphPad. Using GraphPad, students can submit graphed solutions for grading, including lines, parabolas, circles, systems, and inequalities. Some of my recent time has been spent making some student tutorials for WebAssign that show students how to use these new features. Now that the tutorial videos are complete, I’ve loaded them into YouTube for all to use. You should be able to embed the video tutorials in your learning management system (Angel, Blackboard, Moodle, etc.) using the embed code from YouTube. Alternately, you can play the tutorials directly from the WebAssign website (which will give a clearer video image).
