Project Description

The Middle Township Middle School MATRIX grant program seeks to extend and support student learning and achievement through the infusion of technology in an 88 minute block of Mathematics instruction. Our program provides onsite mentoring and an abundance of professional development opportunities to support mathematics instruction that aligns with the NJ CCCS. Daily utilization of specific technological hardware and software that directly supports and integrates technology with Mathematics instruction to enhance student learning will help us to develop a math program that actively engages all students and teachers in predicting, constructing, and analyzing concepts, patterns, and contrasts within the curriculum. Our MATRIX web site will provide a venue for teachers and students to share mathematical ideas and projects that are developed during the grant with their peers.
