Tech Tips-Mathematics Teacher Magazine

Here is a chance to share your ideas and tricks on the use of any and all
technologies (calculators, computers, internet ...) in any mathematical
subject without having to write a feature length article. What follows is a
CALL FOR TIPS for the Technical Tips section of "Mathematics Teacher", the
monthly secondary school magazine of the NCTM. This "call" will be published
starting with the February issue. However, I hope you will consider submitting
ideas immediately. Note that simple tips that may now seem mundane to you may
be the most powerful for the general population of high school teachers.


As Charles Vonder Embse and Arne Engebretsen relinquish the
editorship after two years of strong leadership, "Tech Tips" will focus on
short tips rather than full-length articles. "Tech Tips" was originally
envisioned as a place to share hints, shortcuts, and ways to use
technology better in the classroom or to improve teacher productivity.
Tips might be as short as a paragraph or a half-page but could be longer.
Tips can be ideas that seem mundane after a little use but that made a big
difference when you first discovered them. Although your ideas may be
documented in manuals, other teachers may not be aware of them. Do
you have a way to use the calculator, the computer, or the Internet that
your colleagues might find interesting or helpful? You need only submit
one or two short example; a whole article is not necessary. Several
authors' submissions may be included in one "Tech Tips" department.
Although this section will continue to publish manuscript-length articles, I
hope that many of you will submit your shorter tips. All submissions
should be sent directly to Al Coons by e-mail or regular mail and should
include your name, address, and any electronic address.
