Forms

Participants will explore selected functions from multiple perspectives. Functions of interest may include polynomials and trigonometric functions, but also matrix functions and geometric transformations. One possible topic would be the use of computer algebra systems to work with functions, and how these can support or hinder learning. For this topic teachers could study relevant research, design and evaluate lessons based on this study, or discuss implications for their own work with students.
