ab: Summary: The authors document the development of, and outcomes from, this
innovative classroom resource. Here is an example of what might be
achieved if creative mathematical approaches are linked to the power
and potential that technologies can offer. The ideas are developed and
tried in real classrooms that exhibit all the usual inhibitors to
learning. The project still has work to do, but the fundamentals that
underpin the process are likely to ensure that the outcomes will
enhance learning in many classrooms. Not only that, you are invited to
become involved. Can you afford not to be part of the team?
