Using Technology to Increase Conceptual Understanding in Algebra and Geometry

Annie Fetter, the Math Forum
Thursday, October 25, 2012
8:00  9:00
Session 12
Meeting Room 17 (Convention Center)

Annie

Description: Many topics in algebra and geometry are difficult to address
conceptually and tend to be taught procedurally. We'll
explore interactive applets that let students "notice and
wonder," talk about mathematical situations, and develop
conceptual understandings of triangle properties, linear
equations, systems of equations, and factoring trinomials.

Description: Heard all the hype about Twitter? Wondering how it helps math teachers improve their practice? Thinking about developing
your own learning network? Skeptical that anything can be
communicated in 140 characters? The speaker will share stories
and tips on using Twitter to build a community to support
your professional development.
