 Technology in the IMP Classroom  Alper, Fendel, Fraser, Resek
The Interactive Mathematics Program (IMP) has developed a new fouryear high school curriculum which is organized around units lasting from 5 to 8 weeks. Each unit centers on a rich problem, and students develop new concepts and skills by solving that central problem. Graphing calculators play an important role in the IMP curriculum, involving simulations, curvefitting, operations with matrices, and programming. Examples of the use of calculators in the curriculum and guiding principles for their use are given in these papers.
