Problem Solving and Technology Implementation in an Inclusion Classroom

Michelle O'Donnell, Woodlynne School
Annie Fetter, The Math Forum @ Drexel

[contact info available in the handout] - all of the Math Forum's presentations

Learn how a middle school math teacher and a math coach are creating a problem solving environment in classrooms which include English language learners and special education students. We'll share problems and accompanying activities (some of which involve Sketchpad¨, applets, and other technology) that can help turn students into problem solvers.
