Technology has revolutionized the way mathematics and science are taught and few innovations in mathematics education have had as much impact as the graphing calculator. Fourteen classroom teachers were brought together during the summer of 1997 and during a week-long workshop, the teachers collaborated to develop a resource guide for integrating graphing calculators into the mathematics curriculum for grades 7-12. This book provides those lessons that cover a wide variety of mathematical concepts and topics and are intended to facilitate the use of the graphing calculator in the classroom. Designed to be consistent with national standards and state frameworks for mathematics, the lessons emphasize hands-on, problem solving approaches and connections to science and the real world. Some lessons also incorporate other forms of technology such as calculator-based laboratories. (ASK)
