Tool #9 Assignment, create a new post in which you respond to the following:
Why do you think it is important to tie the technology to the objective?
     I believe it is important to tie technology to the objective so that way it will be incorporated into the student's learning.
Why should we hold students accountable for the stations/centers?
Students should be accountable for their stations so they will act responsibly and take an active participation into their learning objectives.
Visit 2 of the applicable links to interactive websites for your content/grade level.
Which sites did you like. How could you use them as stations? How can you hold the students accountable for their time in these stations?
I visited:
-manipula math: it has some interesting demonstration on the reflective properties of conics,
-math interactives: it has some interesting presentations and interactive lessons on parabolas,
- interactive: it some interesting graphs of comic sections where students can explore the different graphs of conics.
In order for me to use these sites, I would create a set of questions or taks they students could accomplish using the tools in these sites - these taks/questions would not only guide them on their explorations, but also hold them accountable as they progress through the taks.
List two to three apps you found for the iPod Touch/iPad that you can use in your classroom. What do you see that station looking like? How can you hold the students accountable for their time in these stations?

I found the following app worth exploring:
-free graphing calculator,
-Myscript- calculator ,
I need to explore each of these apps to further understand how they would help build greater I understanding of algebra 2 objectives.  I can see how these tools could be helpful in exploring problems and building new knowledges - they challenges lies in bridging these tools with Algebra 2 and time.
What about other ways to use the iPod Touch/iPad? Share another way you can see your students using the device as a station.
I foresee my students using the iPads to watch videos of class lessons that they are struggling with.  I tried some this year using my websites and - students really enjoyed and found them valuable.
