Use appropriate instruments, electronic equipment, computers and networks to access information, process ideas and communicate results. Technology provides a means to carry out operations with speed and accuracy; to display, store and retrieve information and results; and to explore and extend knowledge. The technology of paper and pencil is appropriate in many mathematical situations. In many other situations, calculators or computers are required to find answers or create images. Specialized technology may be required to make measurements, determine results or create images. Students must be able to use the technology of calculators and computers including spreadsheets, dynamical geometry systems, computer algebra systems, and data analysis and graphing software to represent information, form conjectures, solve problems and communicate results.
STATE GOAL 6: Demonstrate and apply a knowledge and sense of numbers, including numeration and operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), patterns, ratios and proportions. STATE GOAL 7: Estimate, make and use measurements of objects, quantities and relationships and determine acceptable levels of accuracy. STATE GOAL 8: Use algebraic and analytical methods to identify and describe patterns and relationships in data, solve problems and predict results. STATE GOAL 9: Use geometric methods to analyze, categorize and draw conclusions about points, lines, planes and space. STATE GOAL 10: Collect, organize and analyze data using statistical methods; predict results; and interpret uncertainty using concepts of probability.
