ab: Publisher’s description: According to NCTM’s Principles and Standards
for School mathematics, “Technology is essential in teaching and
learning of mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught
and it enhances students’ learning." How does research inform this
clarion call for technology in mathematics teaching and learning? In
response to the need to craft appropriate roles for technology in
school mathematics new technological approaches have been applied to
the teaching and learning of mathematics, and these approaches have
been examined by researchers world-wide. The first volume provides
insight into what research suggests about the nature of mathematics
learning in technological environments. Included in this volume are
syntheses of research on technology in the learning of rational number,
algebra, elementary and secondary geometry, mathematical modeling, and
calculus. Additional chapters synthesize research on technology in the
practice of teaching and on equity issues in the use of technology in
mathematics instruction. Instead of simply reporting achievement scores
of students who use technology in their learning, authors provide
thoughtful analyses of bodies of research with the goal of
understanding the ways in which technology affects what and how
students learn. Each of the chapters in this volume is written by a
team of experts whose own research has provided important guidance to
the field. Table of contents: Preface. The Learning of Rational Number
