Integrated Math I teachers wanted for Fluid Math Study

Two opportunities to participate in a research study being conducted by Fluidity Software, Inc.; funded by the NIH. The study will explore the use of FluidMath, a highly innovative software application for teaching and learning math. FluidMath is a software product that enables teachers to create, solve, animate and explore math problems on the screen of an iPAD or Interactive Whiteboard all in your own handwriting as if working with pencil and paper.

Stipend for Experimental Group (teachers who will use FluidMath): $1500.

Stipend for Control Group (teacher who will not use FluidMath): $1000.
