ab: Eight college students with substantial college mathematics backgrounds and
with familiarity with the TI-92 CAS technology were interviewed as they
solved nonroutine problems while they had access to the TI-92. This
article reports data related to the ways in which the technology
interacted with the problem-solving process (pseudomathematics and
communities of practice, the effects of technology on problem solving
approaches, and the impact of mathematical and technological domain
knowledge) and data related to ways in which students dealt with
technological results which appeared in the process of problem solving
(trying to make sense of technological results). (orig.)
