Technology-based Math Curriculums

L. Hubbard


Focused on the development of computer-based math curriculums at Langley High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University; Creation of a Cognitive Tutor curriculum; Involvement of real world situations in Cognitive Tutor; Differences of Cognitive Tutor from traditional curriculums.



This article gives an overview of the importance of asking students questions that interest them in order to engage the students more in learning. By asking students to solve real-world problems instead of abstract questions, students are more likely to absorb information. Further, students who were taught in these real-world situations were found to enroll and complete more mathematic classes than their peers.
