An Examination of Student Engagement using Computing and Robotics in the Mathematics Classroom
This study informed how using computing and robotics engages students in the mathematics classroom compared to a traditional mathematics education. The study afforded an opportunity to research the effects of implementing computing and robotics in the regular mathematics classroom compared to traditional learning. The data for the research was gathered through a student survey, teacher observations, and grade comparison. Ultimately, this study informed about the benefits with regard to the implementation of computing and robotics as an asset to the engagement of students in mathematics in the classroom. There were mixed results with the data from the triangulation but the overall analysis demonstrated positive outcomes. The data showed that students in fact improved their grades from the first grading period to the second, were more engaged in class as they worked on C-STEM objectives, and their feedback provided the whole spectrum of feelings towards their work and accomplishments.
