  1. Programming And Probability: A Practical Application of Principles and Standards for School Mathematics

    Karan B. Smith, University of North Carolina at Wilmington, United States

    This article describes ideas for teaching students critical concepts in probability through novel approaches available with today's technology. These teaching ideas include student work in... More

    pp. 5-18

  2. Cognitive Heterogeneity in Computer-Mediated Mathematical Action as a Vehicle for Concept Development

    Sergei Abramovich, State University of New York College at Potsdam, United States

    This article focuses on a spreadsheet-enabled pedagogy aimed at the early development of combinatorial reasoning. The setting includes manipulative-computational worksheets with enactive arithmetic... More
