Teachers as Facilitators

The teacher acts as facilitator for the students as they explore the problems presented in the TRAC™ module. The teacher's knowledge becomes a resource as the students investigate ways to approach the problem.

TRAC™ activities are designed around a number of disciplines. Math teachers use the program at every level from basic algebra to advanced calculus, with activities that illustrate computer spreadsheets, geometry, graphing data, probabilities distribution, and queuing. Physical science classes address friction, gravity, magnetism, motion, and structures. Social science teachers explore the environment, urban planning, history, local government, technology's relationship to society, politics, and government regulations.
