Penn State GE Project
The GE project is a collaboration between the Steelton Highspire School District and the Pennsylvania State University Colleges of Education and Engineering. First the project will provide a set of TI-73 Explorer graphing calculators for each classroom in grades 6,7, and 8 along with an overhead view-screen and calculator for each teacher. Second the project will focus on improving students’ responses to open-ended mathematics tasks, including those found on the PSSA test. The third aspect of the project is to provide a range of mathematics problems, matched to the school curriculum, that are set in ‘new technology’ contexts such as compact fluorescent lighting, cell phones, and digital media. Students will work on mathematics skills while seeing how mathematics helps to explain how things in their world work
