The following modules are designed to incorporate technology in a general studies mathematics class.
The technology that has been integrated includes various types of calculators, computers
(mainly using spreadsheets), and the Internet.
Many of the activities that are set up to be done using a calculator could also be revamped
to use a spreadsheet on a computer.
The activities are designed to help students develop skills in problem solving, improve
communication skills (both written and oral), and deepen their understanding of the mathematics
being covered. Some of the activities were chosen because they cover topics with which students
in this type of class have a problem. The activities can be revised to meet the needs of each instructor
and his or her particular class.
