Computers, calculators, and tablets
Conditional Statement: If students are allowed to use technology such as computers, calculators, and tablets, they will be able to develop a deeper understanding of the math concepts presented within their course.
Inverse Statement: If students are not allowed to use technology such as computers, calculators, and tablets, then they would not be able to develop a deeper understanding of the math concepts presented within their course.
Converse Statement: Students will be able to develop a deeper understanding of the math concepts presented within their course, if they are allowed to use technology such as computers, calculators, and tablets.
Contrapositive Statement: Students will not be able to develop a deeper understanding of the math concepts presented within their course, if they are not allowed to use technology such as computers, calculators, and tablets.
Mobile phones, tablets and computers in classrooms? Sounds silly, but more students will be able to develop a mathematical concepts presented in their courses and have a deeper understanding if they are allowed to use the technology. These electronic tools have become such an important part of our society. Today’s technology can improve education, engage more students, and help us prepare them for the future. Technology can help students develop through exploration and research to better learning skills. Students who collect information from the Internet tend to be more independent and do not need to rely on the teacher as much. Students can also create their own understanding of a subject, so it is easy for teachers to understand the students’ knowledge. Technology allows students to focus on one thing instead of multiple books and papers.
With more and more visual presentations and lectures there will be more flexibility for students to participate. In order for students to be able to give their 100% the lessons’ presentations should be with the latest technology so they can really understand it. By using technology in the classroom students will discover the crucial thinking and workplace skills they will need in order to be successful in the future. In the workplace, the computers are being used every day so letting them work on them now will help them prepare for the future. Of course, there will always be some technical negative aspects for use in the classroom, such as non-school-related activities, and misuse of the Internet. However, in most cases, pros largely overthrow the cons. Most of the negative aspects are only minor problems that can be fixed with some guidance.

Part 3: If you were a geometry teacher, would you allow students’ access to electronics devices during class? What types of electronic devices would you let them use or not use? What evidence can you use to support your claim if a parent questions your decision as the teacher? Would your students be allowed to use their electronic devices during tests? What would you do for students that do not have their own electronic devices?
If I were a geometry teacher I would definitely allow my students access to electronic devices, provided they are on my terms. I think I could help my students with their homework and help me as a teacher to present lessons. They would be allowed to use their phones, computers, calculators, etc. These electronic devices are used only for school-related purposes. Evidence that I would use if a parent questioned my decisions as a teacher would be increased knowledge and creativity of my students have gained since I allowed technology. My students are only allowed to use a calculator during tests other electronic device used would be considered cheating. If a student of mine did not have an electronic device on your own I would do everything possible to provide one for them, because I believe that all students should have the opportunity to use one.
