Build Elementary Math Skills with Technology!

Use these examples of projects created by students to inspire technology integration in your elementary math program.

Creative use of technology can engage students, and help you integrate your iPads, PCs, or Chromebooks into the curriculum.

"As a teacher who uses the CGI math practices for mathematics instruction, the opportunity for the students to articulate how they solved their math problem was so empowering for both the teachers and students. The use of pictures and the recordings supported the students in explaining their math knowledge and number sense and guided teachers towards making next step decisions by listening to their thought process!"
