Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2003 (2003) pp. 2961–2968
Research results will be presented and summarized from a study of how prospective teachers learn to facilitate students while problem solving using technology tools. The implications from this research will be used to discuss the future directions...
Facilitating Students' Problem Solving in a Technological Context: Prospective Teachers' Learning Trajectory
Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education Vol. 8, No. 3 (June 2005) pp. 223–254
In the past decade, there has been an increased emphasis on the preparation of teachers who can effectively engage students in meaningful mathematics with technology tools. This study presents a closer look at how three prospective teachers...
Orana Vol. 1, No. 1 (2002) pp. 1–5
Describes software tools designed to help students investigate relationships among representations of rational numbers that emphasize the part-whole model of a rational number. (KHR)
Teaching Children Mathematics Vol. 6, No. 6 (2000) pp. 358–63
Describes how third grade students worked together to investigate relationships between fractions and percents using a spreadsheet tool. Highlights a dynamic classroom environment in which students and teachers work together as a community to learn...
Conceptualization and Design of "Probability Explorer" A Research-based Journey Toward Innovative Educational Software
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning Vol. 45, No. 2 (2001) pp. 22–24
The design of "Probability Explorer" was inspired by: lack of research-based elementary probability software; constructivist principles for designing computer microworlds; and research on children's probabilistic reasoning. Discussion includes the...
Mathematics Teacher Vol. 98, No. 1 (Aug 01, 2004) pp. 56–59
Two technology guidelines are contributed by Robin Rider of East Carolina University based on the TI-Interactive software she had introduced. The two guidelines to use for this software consist firstly of data gathering with a Calculator-Based...
Mathematics Teacher Vol. 98, No. 2 (Sep 01, 2004) pp. 136–140
Some of the graphing capabilities of The Geometer's Sketchpad (GSP) in the "Technology Tips" are introduced. The new graphing features of GSP allow teachers to implement the software not only in geometry classrooms but also into their algebra,...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 1999 (1999) pp. 950–954
This paper reflects on activities to help prepare elementary and secondary mathematics teachers to use a spreadsheet as an instructional tool. Collaboration on this paper was born out of common epistemological, pedagogical, and mathematical...
Social Studies and the Young Learner Vol. 12, No. 1 (1999) pp. 6–10
Describes an interdisciplinary project incorporating both geography and mathematics for fourth and fifth grade students. Focuses on reading a map with lines of latitude and longitude, learning about climatic regions, and using statistical measures...
Journal of Mathematical Behavior Vol. 25, No. 3 (2006) pp. 252–266
The design of technology tools has the potential to dramatically influence how students interact with tools, and these interactions, in turn, may influence students' mathematical problem solving. To better understand these interactions, we analyzed...
Educational Leadership Vol. 56, No. 5 (1999) pp. 21–25
Technology offers tools and information that students need to explore real-world mathematical connections and investigate questions reflecting their own interests. This article illustrates how students can use technology to gather and interpret...
Making Comparisons between Observed Data and Expected Outcomes: Students' Informal Hypothesis Testing with Probability Simulation Tools
Statistics Education Research Journal Vol. 9, No. 1 (May 2010) pp. 68–96
We examined how middle school students reason about results from a computer-simulated die-tossing experiment, including various representations of data, to support or refute an assumption that the outcomes on a die are equiprobable. We used students'...
Understanding Prospective Mathematics Teachers' Processes for Making Sense of Students' Work with Technology
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education Vol. 42, No. 1 (January 2011) pp. 39–64
This study investigated the processes used by prospective mathematics teachers as they examined middle-school students' work solving statistical problems using a computer software program. Ways in which the model may be used by other researchers and ...
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 1, No. 1 (2000) pp. 66–88
In the Principles and Standards of School Mathematics the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) identified the "Technology Principle" as one of six principles of high quality mathematics education (NCTM, 2000). This principle states: ...

Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 53, No. 2 (2005) pp. 99–112
The Internet is increasingly being used as a medium for educational software in the form of miniature applications (e.g., applets) to explore concepts in a domain. One such effort in mathematics education, the Educational Software Components of...
Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association 2003 (2003)
This paper describes the Educational Software Components of Tomorrow (ESCOT) project. The focus of the project was on principles that support problem-solving and learner-centered design issues, and the purpose was to garner lessons from a large...
