For October 15, 2009: Teaching students how to think mathematically through hands-on technology is one of the goals at the Center for Technology and Teacher Education. The focus for this project was developing lessons around graphing calculators, Geometer's Sketchpad, Microsoft Excel, the ExploreMath.com website, Global Positioning Systems, and MicroWorlds logo. Activities range from collecting and numerically analyzing M&M data to exploring geometric constructions of parabolas. Files for completing the activities can be downloaded into your software programs.
