Course DescriptionApply algebraic concepts to develop mathematical models and deepen understanding of mathematical content knowledge. Emphasis is on non-linear models, supported by use of graphic technology, and effective communication of quantitative concepts and results. Analyze current mathematics education research on teaching and learning with ICT. Examine and critique existing instructional units for topics such as logarithmic, log-linear, exponential, hyperbolic, power, periodic and parametric models and design effective learning environments and experiences for all students. Content aligned with ISTE National Educational Technology Standards.
