Presta - digitization
With the advent of inexpensive digital cameras and camcorders, amazing hands-on mathematical adventures become possible for every student!
Students have a real chance to explore nature and the world around them from a mathematical viewpoint. Like only a few technologies, the digital camera and mathematics are perfectly matched for making connections.
Students can answer for themselves questions such as:
Faculty can introduce and connect math concepts with students in new ways that can enrich mathematics appreciation with a simple and inexpensive tool. Just about anything that can be measured can be measured can be analyzed from a variety of viewpoints: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and calculus. Students also learn first hand the importance of coordinate systems and the value of system scales. Students will also learn firsthand the importance of multiple sampling.
Not only that, students learning and useage of common, everyday software will be enhanced as never before.
