ab: Summary: This article proposes a framework for classroom teachers to use in
making pedagogical decisions regarding which mathematical materials
(concrete and digital) to use, when they might be most appropriately
used, and why. Two iPad apps (“Area of Shapes (Parallelogram)” and
“Area of Parallelogram”) are also evaluated to demonstrate the
usefulness of the framework in assisting teachers to evaluate digital
resources in terms of their pedagogical, cognitive and mathematical
fidelity. The Area of Shapes (Parallelogram) app consists of four
components; an interactive lesson, a virtual geoboard, a
multiple-choice test, and a challenge component. The Area of
Parallelogram app consists only of a lesson with voice-overs and
diagrams explaining to students how to determine the area of a
parallelogram. (ERIC)
