Andover Central High School
Andover Central High School Math Department (Crystal Davis, Chad Gerwick, Jesse Herrmann, Greg Hewitt, Brett Randolph, Peggy Slaten, Emily Taylor, and Bethany Tyndall)
With the adoption of new math textbooks in the high school, the teachers and students have a multitude of resources they can access online. The teachers have the ability to give online homework assignments. The online assignments give the students immediate feedback as to whether they get the questions right or wrong. Doing the assignments online has encouraged the students to persevere in problem solving and attend to precision. In addition to needing technology to complete homework assignments, there are also exploration activities sprinkled throughout the different courses that utilize online resources like Desmos and Geogebra. The increased utilization of online resources has created the need for additional access to technology in the classroom. This is why the math department is requesting two sets of Chromebooks and Chromebook Carts.
