CMU Researchers are hoping to collaborate with algebra teachers in designing and testing a homework system using technology. This homework system provides practice and feedback to students and information on progress and mastery to teachers. In the long-term, the system will include metacognitive feedback and a monitoring system. They are also looking to have teachers and students involved as part of the co-design process for those tools.
Teachers – 3-5 class periods + short meetings with researchers, assigning homework via smartphone app
Students – using smartphone based software as algebra homework
Gift cards and stipends for teachers as well as books or incentives for their classrooms
