|John Woodward; University of Puget Sound|
|A resource guide for extending mathematical understanding in secondary schools, for educators who teach mathematics and are interested in integrating common technologies into their daily instruction. Onsite strands (Math Concepts with lessons related to fractions, geometry, functions, and other common pre-algebra topics; Integrated Lessons that combine technology with mathematical problem solving and written communication, providing examples of in-depth problem solving in mathematics) incorporate spreadsheets or describe how to use calculators, word processors, and presentation software as part of a problem-solving process or as a tool for completing a project. There is also an entire strand (Journaling) on mathematical writing and how to use math journals - simple paper and pencil "technologies" - as a complement to daily instruction.|
