Mobile Math: Math Educators and Students Engage in Mobile Learning


Journal of Computing in Higher Education Volume 20, Number 2, ISSN 1042-1726


The public and educational communities are aware of the continuing crisis in math education in our middle schools and the convergence of technologies for teaching and learning. This paper presents a case study in which iPod Touch[R] was used to help middle school students learn about algebraic equations and, in particular, the concept of slope, absolute value, and elimination. The development of math movies for use on the iPod Touch provided students with a mobile means of informal math learning beyond the hours of the classroom. While the study explored the use of mobile devices in an eighth grade math classroom, the lessons learned are invaluable to those seeking to implement mobile technologies to support teaching and learning with typical software, such as iMovie, PowerPoint, and iTunes[R].
