Integrating External Software into SMART Board™ Calculus Lessons
JMEATC Volume 2, Number 2,
Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs) are becoming commonplace throughout primary, secondary, and postsecondary classrooms. However, the focus of the associated lesson creation & management software tools delivered with IWBs has been the primary grades, while secondary and postsecondary mathematics lessons have requirements beyond what is delivered entirely within this software. This article describes how SMART Notebook™, the software delivered with SMART Technologies' SMART Board™, allows teachers to easily go beyond any perceived limitations by facilitating integration of a wide variety of other software packages to produce dynamic, visually appealing, and most important, effective calculus lessons. The content and visual requirements of such lessons are described and examples from actual lessons demonstrate how these requirements can be fulfilled.
