: In-service teachers strive to integrate critical thinking, problem-based learning, creativity, and rigor into their instructional techniques. With technology transforming the lives of humans globally, literacy instruction must respond to changes...
Mathematics Teacher Vol. 99, No. 4 (November 2005) pp. 288–291
Graphic tips for using the Geometer's Sketchpad (GSP) are described. The methods to import an image into GSP, define a coordinate system, plot points and curve fit the function using a graphical calculator are demonstrated where the graphic features ...
Mathematics Teacher Vol. 105, No. 3 (October 2011) pp. 180–188
Mathematics educators frequently extol the virtues of inquiry-based instruction to classroom teachers. Although research suggests that inquiry benefits learners by allowing them to make sense of the mathematics they encounter, particularly through...
Teaching Children Mathematics Vol. 16, No. 7 (March 2010) pp. 420–428
During a two-week summer professional development workshop, teams of intermediate-level school teachers and college methods instructors crafted mathematics learning modules--activities, lesson plans, work sheets, and technology-oriented tasks--with...
Mathematics Teacher Vol. 106, No. 5 (December 2012) pp. 346–353
Curriculum standards provide classroom teachers with frameworks to guide instruction during the academic year and throughout a student's schooling. Unfortunately, standards are misconstrued as all-encompassing--as a compendium of all mathematics...
Teachers' statistical problem solving with dynamic technology: Research results across multiple institutions
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 12, No. 3 (September 2012) pp. 286–307
This study examined a random stratified sample (n = 62) of prospective teachers' work across eight institutions on three tasks that utilized dynamic statistical software. The authors considered how teachers utilized their statistical knowledge and...
