326- How to Train Your Draggin': Functional Thinking with Dynamic Sketches

Friday, April 15, 2011: 8:00 AM-9:00 AM
123 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Michael Todd Edwards
Jeffrey J. Wanko

This interactive presentation will explore several freely available dynamic applets that generate plots of ordered pairs by dragging geometric objects. By applying educative dragging, the speakers will build algebraic models to fit these plots while collaboratively generating functions that both surprise and satisfy mathematically.

Presentation Format: 9-12 Session
Grade Band Audience: Preservice and Inservice, 9 to 12
