AMATYC Outer Banks Summer Institute & Teachers Teaching with Technology
College Short Course Program are offering the short course
"Developmental Algebra Using a Function Approach"
On the ocean: Outer Banks of North Carolina (Duck). Registration
deadline: April 15, 2005
June 12 - June 17, 2005. Taught by Debbie Crocker, Appalachian State
University; Ed Laughbaum, The Ohio State University
The Teachers Teaching with Technology College Short Course Program short
course "Developmental Algebra Using a Function Approach" in San Diego,
California, August 10-12, 2005. Registration deadline: August 1, 2005
Taught by Joe Fiedler, California State University, Bakersfield.

Using modified traditional remedial algebra materials approached through
function, we will reorder the content and capitalize on function
concepts to develop understanding of algebraic ideas. Teaching from a
function approach means using functions and function behaviors to teach
mathematics such as factoring, equation solving, arithmetic operations
on polynomials, systems of equations, inequalities, properties of
inequalities, definitions, concept of asymptotic behavior, absolute
value, slope, laws of exponents, etc. We will explore cognitive
processes of associations, pattern recognition, attention,
visualizations, and the enriched teaching environment, and provide an
argument that both the function approach and graphing calculators are
crucial to teaching and learning of developmental algebra. We will use
the Texas Instruments CBL 2(tm) and TI-84 Plus SE(tm) as tools of choice
when teaching remedial algebra. Three quarter-hours of graduate credit
are available from Portland State University. We will be offering the
TI-84 Plus SE trade-up for those wishing to trade in your VS TI-83 Plus
or VS TI-83 for a TI-84 Plus SE VS model.

The Teachers Teaching with Technology College Short Course Program (T3
CSC) is offering a 3-day short course for Math Teacher Educators:
"Implementing Texas Instruments Technology Focused at the High School
Level" in two locations.

At the Ocean in Jacksonville, Florida. Registration deadline: April 25,
June 1 - June 3, 2005. Taught by Judy O'Neal, North Georgia College &
State University
Near the Bats in Austin, Texas. Registration deadline: May 13, 2005
July 18 - 20, 2005. Taught by Patsy Fagan, Drake University.

The short course is designed for mathematics teacher educators involved
in the both content and methods courses for preservice secondary
mathematics teachers. We will investigate materials and activities for
the mathematics teacher educator interested in integrating handheld
technology in the preservice teacher educator program. The course
consists of a series of modules designed to help college faculty
implement technology enhanced lessons in their courses as well as
presenting some concepts within a module in a developmental sequence.
The current modules are: Number Relations, Dynamic Geometry, Algebra,
Probability/Statistics/Data Analysis, and Apps. The Texas Instruments
TI-84 Plus SE, Voyage 200(tm) , CBL 2(tm), CBR, and TI-Navigator will be
integrated into the teaching activities. The course is a cooperative
effort between the T3 *Teachers Teaching with Technology College Short
Course Program <> and Texas
Instruments Inc. <>. Each of the first 25 participants
will receive a free TI-84 Plus SE VS unit, a CBL 2, and a $200 housing
