The 16th annual AT&T/MACUL/MVU Student Technology Showcase took place December 7, 2016 in the rotunda of the Michigan State Capitol building. The event featured nearly 40 student teams from around the state that showcased students demonstrating the use of classroom technology. This is a series to highlight the participating teams. Articles were submitted by each team.

The Clarenceville Middle School student team project featured at the 16th Annual STS at the Capitol focused on exploring math through Google Classroom.

Clarenceville Middle School students were using Google Classroom to learn about the wonderful world of math. They used Google tools such as, Equation Editor, Google Draw, Google Slides, and Google Forms to interact with math in a virtual classroom.

Also, by posting videos, playing games, and using sites like Geogebra and Desmos, students had plenty of opportunities to practice math beyond the school day.

Clarenceville Middle school teacher Erica Sowders can get away from more traditional teaching by using Google Classroom and doing a variety of activities that engage students in learning math such as using Prodigy which is a math game that review math skills. She also is able to use online manipulatives and applets such as the ones on Geogebra and Desmos.

“These are only a handful of things I can do to teach math using Google Classroom,” Mrs. Sowders said.
