Abstract

Abstract: This paper discusses the capabilities of TI InterActive software, a program that creates an interactive computer environment with TI graphing calculator functionality, as an action on object approach to learning functions. With TI InterActive multi-representations can be used to explore ideas and make conjectures. The actions and objects can then be compressed into new concepts which can then be acted upon as new objects, continuing the cycle of learning. TI InterActive has many capabilities, but its greatest strengths rest in its ability to pose problems with representations (objects) that stand for mathematical ideas that otherwise would be abstract, and to act upon the these objects to develop mathematical understanding.
