Summary: This article describes teachers working collaboratively to plan mathematics lessons in a technologyrich environment. Addressing the needs of their diverse students, in particular, English Language Learners and students with special needs, the authors discuss how a technologyrich learning environment influences critical features of the classroom. They use classroom examples to show how technology tools amplify opportunities for extending mathematical thinking. (Contains 4 figures.) (ERIC)
