Perkins contributes to mathematics book

By Staff

Katherine Perkins, associate professor at CU-Boulder, as well as authors Karina Hensberry, Noah Podolefsky, Ariel Paul, and Emily Moore, have contributed a chapter to “Common Core Mathematics Standards and Implementing Digital Technologies,” edited by Drew Polly (University of North Carolina at Charlotte).

“Common Core Mathematics Standards and Implementing Digital Technologies” provides a critical discussion of educational standards in mathematics and how communication technologies can support the implementation of common practices across state lines.

The chapter from the CU-Boulder authors focuses on the design and use of interactive simulations as a powerful tool for learning. Since 2002, the PhET Interactive Simulations project at the CU-Boulder has developed these tools to improving STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) teaching and learning.

The book is part of IGI Global’s Advances in Educational Technologies and Instructional Design (AETID) Book Series.
