Abstract


This article presents the results of a quantitative research about the effects of using interactive whiteboards in high school
mathematics classroom. It will be helpful for the high school mathematics teachers as well as for researchers in the field of
teaching mathematics. The aim of the article is to investigate the effects of using interactive whiteboards in high school mathematics
classrooms.
In
the
article
the
following
research
questions
are
answered:
“What
can
we
do
with
an
interactive
whiteboard?”
and
“Do
we
really
need
the
properties
of
the
interactive
whiteboard?”
For
the
research
part
of
the
article
mathematics

lessons
for
tenth
grade
students
of
a
private
school
in
Tbilisi
were
held
in
two
ways.
During
the
first
6
weeks
the
topics
were

taught
on a blackboard by
traditional methods.
Starting from seventh week we used an interactive whiteboard. At
the end of
the
research
a
student
questionnaire
was
applied.
In
the
questionnaire
10
questions
were
asked
about
the
benefits
and
differences
of using interactive whiteboards in
mathematics lessons. It was
found that the application of
interactive whiteboards in

mathematics
lessons has a number of significant benefits.
