Mathematics and Computer Education Vol. 37, No. 1 (2003) pp. 105–14
Investigates a way to assist students with learning differences. Considers mathematical connections appropriate in middle grades through college mathematics centered around the words "and" and "or" within the fields of logic, set theory, algebra,...
Mathematics and Computer Education Vol. 35, No. 3 (2001) pp. 209–15
This brief investigation exemplifies such considerations by relating concepts from number theory, set theory, probability, logic, and calculus. Satisfying the call for students to acquire skills in estimation, the following technique allows one to ...
Mathematics and Computer Education Vol. 36, No. 3 (2002) pp. 218–26
Demonstrates how male mathematicians historically controlled the professional and academic activities of female mathematicians. Attempts to explain some historical factors leading to the relatively small number of women that enter the field of...
Mathematics and Computer Education Vol. 32, No. 1 (1998) pp. 52–61
Considers a trio of students who collaboratively discover a generalization while doing their calculus homework. Describes the argument as a play which portrays a relatively natural situation cleansed from unrefined mathematical language, errors, and ...
Mathematics Teacher Vol. 105, No. 4 (November 2011) pp. 293–297
For many high school students as well as preservice teachers, geometry can be difficult to learn without experiences that allow them to build their own understanding. The authors' approach to geometry instruction--with its integration of content,...
Mathematics and Computer Education Vol. 38, No. 3 (2004) pp. 298–306
The advent of powerful Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) continues to dramatically affect curricula, pedagogy, and epistemology in secondary and college algebra classrooms. However, epistemological and pedagogical research regarding the role and...
Mathematics and Computer Education Vol. 36, No. 1 (2002) pp. 53–61
Both computers and calculators are limited by architecture, operating system, and software, to some predetermined level of precision within decimal number presentation and calculation. However, there exists a base that produces a terminating decimal....
PRIMUS Vol. 17, No. 2 (April 2007) pp. 195–208
Many popular mathematical software products including Maple, Mathematica, Derive, Mathcad, Matlab, and some of the TI calculators produce incorrect graphs because they use complex arithmetic instead of "real" arithmetic. This article expounds on...
