This site supports the Technology Integration in Mathematics projects and the Exploring Math projects. The projects are aimed at supporting teachers in grades 3-5 to integrate technology and problem-solving approaches into their mathematics teaching.The links provided here support teachers in exploring a variety of ways technology can be used to enhance student mathematical thinking and problem solving.

This professional development effort is a partnership between researchers and graduate students in the Learning & Performance Support Lab at the University of Georgia, the school administrators and teachers, Denise Mewborn in Mathematics Education at UGA, and Sybilla Beckmann in Mathematics at UGA. All questions about this project can be directed to the PI: Chandra Orrill.

For the 2007-2008 academic year, we are working with schools in Franklin County and Richmond County. Previous work has taken place in Madison County, Clarke County and Oglethorpe County. All of these efforts have been made possible through funding from the Title II Part A "Improving Teaching Quality" Higher Education Program and, before that, the Eisenhower Program.

Current and past personnel on the Technology Integration in Mathematics project include:

  • Holly Anthony
  • Laurel Bleich
  • Ben Deaton
  • D. Natasha Brewley-Corbin
  • Rachael Brown (2007-2008)
  • Victor Brunaud-Vega (2007-2008)
  • Sandy Geisler (2007-2008)
  • Sarah Ledford
  • Eileen Murray (2007-2008)
  • Drew Polly
  • Peter Rich
  • Craig Shepherd
  • Ernise Singleton
  • Andy Tyminski

The TIM team's effort has been enhanced through support offered by Art Recesso, Julie Moore, and Gretchen Thomas.

Portions of the technology integration element of the TIM project are based on Art Recesso's Technology and Learning Continuum. Extensive information on the model is available at the Continuum's website.
