Abstract

This AR project is concerned with overcoming barriers by implementing technology to improve mathematics instruction for middle school students. Students used multi-media project based learning to create 2-D and 3-D geometric figures while learning to solve square area and volume. After students were given a unit pretest, they used multi-media tools to create and solve sample problems. After a 3 to 4 week cycle students were given a posttest to measure progress. The results show unit posttest scores were significantly than pretest. In addition students were more motivated and engaged in learning the subject matter than when they received instruction in a traditional classroom setting. Multi-media project based leaning is one method of overcoming barriers to implement classroom technology.
