+1 for gMath add-in. Most of our math teachers are still tied to MS Word and MathType but some (as well as some Science folk) have begun the shift to gDocs and gMath. It's a slow process trying to get people to "rewrite" their materials! Many are posting their handouts generated with MathType as PDF to our LMS for students to print as needed, as well as capturing and posting class notes with SMART.

GeoGebra, Desmos, and Geoemter's Sketchpad are also used where applicable, as well as Khan and Rennaissance Learning.

All of that said, Math is one of the areas that is still mostly paper-based and I agree with those teachers that technology is not always the best or most efficient means of doing what they and students do.

We are implementing 1:1 computing with Macbook Airs for grades 9-12 at Twinfield. We are imagining a paperless math class…but trying to keep the ability to jot down a quick note or formula and solve equations and draw graphs by hand (as if on paper).  We know about excel and Math Type, but want the ease of handwriting merged with the ability to save our work and share it electronically. Our math teacher wants to know if there is a device and/or program that allows students to:

•write electronically within a scanned worksheet

•do algebra problems electronically  - but handwritten in order to
place symbols in their traditional locations (not be confined to 
        horizontal lines for spacing)

How are your math teachers using technology in their classrooms/teaching (other than graphing calculators)? 

Thanks,
Maria
