Here are some projects we
are working on to improve upon what we have already accomplished: Ø
In order to provide the best online mathematical
instruction possible, we are hoping to one day soon begin updating the
Calculus I Brain (and maybe even the Calculus II Brain) to meet the Algebra
Brain standard of instruction. The
current Calculus I and II Brains contain sketchy information about subjects
relating to calculus with little of the detail or rigor that our Algebra
Brain users have come to expect and appreciate. The Trigonometry Brain is fully operational. Ø
As always, we hope to encourage more and more
teachers throughout Missouri to utilize our materials. All mathematics teachers in Missouri are
welcome to use the BrainTrax system to enhance their students' learning. Some instruction on how to effectively use
the BrainTrax system is usually beneficial to the teacher.
This
is no longer in development due to the lack of participation by teachers.
We
have several opportunities for teachers to become involved in the BrainTrax
System over the course of Summer 2003. We
are offering a distance-algebra course sponsored by the Teachers
involved in the distance-algebra course must attend workshops on Ø
An
entirely new web-delivered learning environment is being developed for
release in August 2002. It will still
use the Brain for navigation, but we are also including better
teacher/student management tools, including tracking the student's learning
path, and certifying that a student truly understands the material. BT We
are currently soliciting Missouri junior and senior high school mathematics
instructors to help us participate in a grant study to determine the
effectiveness of BT |
