Introducing The Portable Lab

Allow us to show off technology that may be very useful as we explore a Problem of the Week.

Using Graphing Calculators

We will utilize the graphing calculator (and each other as resources) to explore the problems below.Thinking About Pedagogy

- We believe that the Lucent PoWs are being used primarily for extra credit. What would help you use them more routinely as resources in your teaching and learning?

- other ideas?
