100: Using Technology to Increase Conceptual Understanding in Algebra and Geometry
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.
