Theory Summarized:

This article describes a pre
-
test and post
-
test that was taken by student mathematics teachers. It
shows charts of the results for the pretest.

By incorporating this technology and doing different
online activities, the article then demonstrated how the students improved their spatial skills after
taking the post
-
test.

Practical Suggestions:



Incorporate technology in the classroom.



Assign diffe
rent online activities for students.



Use different mathematical software in math classes (ex.: Maple, Matlab).
