their second year of Calculus, and some come into Stats right after passing
Algebra 2 as the easiest way to complete their math requirement. Does anyone
have ideas about differentiating instruction for such a wide range of interest
and ability?
The textbook I chose is heavily into "simulation," so there are several
MathTools (mostly Java applets) I have used. I also have students use
spreadsheets, calculators, and statistical software routinely. Any ideas about
particularly effective activities involving technology?
