Abstract

This paper provides a guided tour illustrating how students can effectively use spreadsheets to internalize and construct meanings for quadratics. The “Aunt Sarah” activity has been used for over 20 years and has been carefully designed to allow opportunities to reflect upon the nature of the experiences and how they connect with teacher candidates' existing mathematical knowledge
