Digital Math Inscriptions Project

Using the Connected Mathematics Project materials, the combined efforts of MSU and Concord Consortium aim to create a collaborative, digital environment to research students' abilities to communicate mathematical understanding.

A major goal of this project is to help students deepen and make visible their understanding of mathematics.  

We will report on how:

  1. evidence of student thinking is made visible through the use of digital inscriptional resources
  2. student inscriptions are registered, talked about, and manipulated in collaborative settings, and
  3. students’ conceptual growth of big mathematical ideas grows over time.
