LEARNING WITH INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL MATH IN THE CLASSROOM Sonia Palha 1 and Stephan Koopman 1 1 University of Applied Sciences of Amsterdam, The Netherlands [email protected] and [email protected] Interactive Virtual Math (IVM) is a visualization tool to support secondary school students’ learning of dynamic functions situations graphs. The logbook-function allows teachers to get continuous and real-time assessment on classroom progress and of individual students’ learning process. In a teaching experiment involving four secondary mathematics teachers and their students, we investigated how the tool was used by the students and by the teachers. Keywords: visualization, Virtual Reality, interactive tool, secondary education, learning analytics AIM AND RESEARCH BACKGROUND Students’ difficulties with tasks involving dynamical situations are well documented in the literature. And there is also a body of knowledge that shows that conventional curricula have not been effective in promoting covariational reasoning in students (Carlson, Larsen, & Lesh, 2003). New technologies can allow for studying dynamic events and therefore be valuable for students to analyse and interpret dynamic function situations. The aims of the Interactive Virtual Math-project are to design and develop a digital tool for learning covariation graphs at high school (14-17 years old students) and to explore the use of new technologies in classroom. The project started in 2016 as a proof of concept in which a prototype tool was developed and tried out with 14-15 years old students (Palha and Koopman, 2016). In the present stage we explore how the tool is used in

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
