ab: This is a comprehensive, well-written, and meticulously organized text on
computing technology for secondary mathematics teacher education. From
the Preface: “This book stems from the author’s interest in and
experience of using computing technology in K-12 mathematics teacher
education. In particular, two decades of teaching prospective secondary
mathematics teachers in technology-rich environments have led the
author to believe that one of the most productive ways to teach
mathematics in the digital era is through experimentation with
mathematical concepts that takes advantage of computers’ capability
to plot sophisticated graphs, construct dynamic geometric shapes,
generate interactive arrays of numbers, and perform symbolic
computations.” The text has eight chapters: 1. Theoretical
foundations of computational experiment approach to secondary
mathematics; 2. One-variable equations and inequalities: the unity of
computational experiment and formal demonstration; 3. Computationally
supported study of quadratic functions depending on parameters; 4.
Computational experiment approach to equations with parameters; 5.
Inequalities with parameters as generators of new meanings; 6.
Computational experiments in trigonometry; 7. Advancing STEM education
through TEMP: geometric probabilities; 8. Exploring topics in
elementary number theory through a computational experiment. I counted
87 worked examples and 305 exercises.
