The purpose of this study was to determine whether the impact of instruction using technology influenced the math achievement of fourth grade students. The measurement tool was the Baltimore County Public Schools Grade 4 Unit 8 math assessment. This study involved the use of a pretest/posttest design to compare data from the beginning of the fractions unit (before the intervention was administered) to data from the end of the unit (after the intervention was nearly complete). Achievement gains were not significant, though results could be attributable to a number of intervening factors. Mathematics instruction should continue to provide various teaching strategies in order to meet the needs of all students.
