textbook on the computer

Posted on June 1, 2012


I’ve mentioned a few times that most online or computer-based math instruction seems to be little more than a textbook, stuck onto a computer display.
Today I checked out http://www.mathatube.com/addition-property-of-addition.html and … how ’bout a blurry movie of a child reading the textbook?
It’s quite a pleasant video, and the child then shows us some examples of the commutative and associative properties… and who needs to know why they’re true?
Over at http://mathconceptsreview.wordpress.com/ I’m logging my personal learning curve in figuring out how to use the computer to make things more interesting.
