The use of interactive whiteboards in the classroom has been hailed as the means in which an increase in student achievement and motivation can be seen. This study aimed to investigate how teachers can effectively incorporate the interactive whiteboard into the mathematics classroom with the purpose of increasing student achievement and motivation. Three third grade classrooms with varying use of interactive whiteboard technology were utilized in this study. Information on multiplication fluency, the ability to demonstrate the mathematical concepts behind multiplication, student views as seen through survey responses, and end of the unit assessment scores were analyzed. Student achievement and motivation increased as a result of utilizing the interactive whiteboard in a highly interactive, student-directed way. Students in the classroom that utilized the technology in an interactive way performed higher academically and demonstrated more favorable views of math and the interactive whiteboard.
