Summary: In the article, several illustrations of how technology might be used to engage students in conceptual conversations and, consequently, to foster studentsâ€™ understandings and intuitions are presented and discussed in three examples: Viewing the relationships in a system of equations; Exploring images of fit in a best-fit line; Using dynamically linked models to generate explanations (sine function behavior).
