Abstract:

The Phase I Empower Math Project (EMP) will result in a technology capable of delivering authentic, engaging, and relevant mathematics studies and understanding to a 9-12 grade audience. EMP is the result of fusing two existing complementary computer-based learning systems, developed by the proposer, called PenMATH and Lord Kelvin. By channeling student interests with authentic experiences, EMP can become a motivator of mathematics-centric studies. Using Java as the enabling technology, EMP will define a learning environment that attains a new level of data-centric mathematics studies that can be conducted in a manner previously unattainable. The software is designed to support learning, both in-class on on-line, effectively. New innovations include the extensive use of animations and simulations to create a data-rich mathematical workspace, and the use of multiple intelligent help agents. The system is designed to be extremely robust, supporting mathematics studies ranging from guided to inquiry-based, across a wide array of learning instances. The developed Phase I technology development project will be guided and evaluated by a highly experienced team of learning specialists.
