Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School Vol. 7, No. 7 (2002) pp. 378–383
Students can form beautiful curves through a kinesthetic experience by using a dynamic geometry program. The examples included are parabolas, pursuit curves, spirals, and more. (MM)
International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning Vol. 3, No. 1 (1998) pp. 1–12
The capacity of the "Geometer's Sketchpad" to trace the path of points by drawing the position of the point at different times provides a powerful tool to help see how velocities are related. Provides a snapshot of the process, along with the traces....
Orana Vol. 1, No. 1 (2002) pp. 1–8
Presents interactive parabolas created from straight segments using a dynamic geometry software and its web component. (Author/KHR)
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 49, No. 4 (2018) pp. 554–570
We discuss how mathematics and secondary mathematics education majors developed an understanding of Fermat points for the triangle as well as Steiner points for the square and regular pentagon, and also of soap film configurations between parallel...
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 16, No. 2 (June 2016) pp. 110–126
In a course emphasizing interactive technology, 19 students, including 18 mathematics education majors, mostly in their first year, reinvented the definition of limit of a sequence while working in small cooperative groups. The class spent four...
Educational Leadership Vol. 55, No. 3 (1997) pp. 20–23
To avoid underuse, inaccessibility, and obsolescence when choosing, purchasing, and using technology, educators should maximize the number of students sharing machines, build technology into the curriculum, ensure continuous accessibility, network...
Integration of Technology, Science, and Mathematics in the Middle Grades: A Teacher Preparation Program
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 2, No. 1 (2002) pp. 31–39
How middle grade teachers in science and mathematics are prepared should be consistent with the vision of what and how students should learn mathematics and science, in particular the integration of these two fields. In this article a teacher...
