Engage Your Students with GPS!
In Utah, 39% of students in 2011 were not proficient Geometry, scoring poorly on the concepts of calculation of area, perimeter, and slope. There is a need to present these concepts to many of our students in a new way.

Global Positioning System Receivers (GPSr’s) can be an effective and engaging technology tool to help your students understand these concepts and enable your students to experience math in their world in a new way. We will cover how to use a GPSr to find the area and perimeter of a location, calculate the slope of a hill (& the distance up that hill!), and even how to figure out the volume of water fall on your school campus during a rainstorm!

Not a math teacher, that’s OK! I will show you over 50 ways to integrate GPS into your instruction in any classroom.
