Thanks for visiting with us in the Exhibit Hall! We enjoyed the many conversations we had about the Math Forum, the Masters of Learning and Teaching Math graduate programs, and a lot of other cool things (like math!).







Congratulations to the winners of our drawings!

Using Screen-Capture Movies to Assess Quadrilateral Constructions in Sketchpad®

11:00 - 12:00
Session 68
Room 408/409, Convention Center

Description: Students' sketches of quadrilateral constructions convey much information about the students' understanding of quadrilateral properties and how those properties drive sound constructions. But how do you document the decisions, missteps, and self-corrections that are lost in the final sketch? Make screen-capture movies of the construction process!
