Techtalk: Mobile Apps and College Mathematics
Journal of Developmental Education Volume 37, Number 2, ISSN 0894-3907
In this column, the authors discuss apps useful in developing mathematical reasoning. They place these into a theoretical framework, suggesting how they could be used in an instructional model such as the Algorithmic Instructional Technique (AIT) developed by Vasquez (2003). This model includes four stages: modeling, practice, transition, and independence. The instructional goal with AIT is to help students develop algorithms to approach different math situations.
