695- Don't Toss Out Four-Function Calculators: Explore Concept Meaning Instead

Saturday, April 28, 2012: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
115 C (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
William R. Speer


  • Use four-function calculators to explore patterns, relations, and functions not usually viewed through calculators. Learn atypical ways of using technology to examine concepts, focusing on reasoning and sense making. Activities will include repeated decimal patterning, conjecturing, hypothesizing, and discovering "keyboard geometry" patterns.
