Algebra in a Technological World. Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics Addenda Series, Grades 9-12.
Heid, M. Kathleen
The purpose of this series is to provide instructional ideas and materials that support implementation of the Curriculum and Evaluation Standards in local settings. This book addresses in a very practical way the content, pedagogy, and pupil assessment dimensions of reshaping school mathematics. Chapters include discussions and activities that project the future of algebra in classrooms where today's learning tools, such as graphing calculators with table-building, graphing, and function-fitting capabilities, are augmented with the capability of performing symbolic manipulations. Chapter titles are: (1) "The Future of Algebra in a Technological World"; (2) "Changes in Learning and Their Consequences for Teaching and Assessing"; (3) "A Functions Approach to Algebra"; (4)"Extending a Functions Approach"; (5) "Matrics"; and (6) Symbolic Reasoning." An appendix contains activity solutions. (Contains 25 references and a 22 citation annotated technology resource list.) (MKR)
