This paper illustrates how Technology Immune Technology Enabled (TITE) problems (Abramovich, 2014), in this case an exploration of correlation and regressions referred to as Burning the Candle , were incorporated into a K-6 mathematics methods class operating within an Action on Objects (AoO) framework (Connell, 2001) This paper will draw upon student work samples, observations and comments to illustrate how the AoO framework allows for the inclusion of TITE problem types into the elementary teacher education curriculum The content thus developed includes measurement, statistics, multiple representations, and explorations going far beyond what traditional paper and pencil approaches at the elementary level allow
