Abstract

The goal of this professional project is to target which methods of teaching math are most engaging from a students’ perspective. The three teaching strategies used over three different lessons were a traditional method, technology based, and emphasis on group work. The target population was a Functions, Statistics, & Trigonometry high school class (AKA Pre-Calculus). The study involved ten participants who remained anonymous. To measure students’ engagement level, there were three methods to collect data: questionnaires, group interviews, and observations. The findings from this research project show students engagement level highest when given technological resources and working with their peers.
