Abstract

When viewed as a content area, mathematics has a split personality. To use an example from language, there are parts of mathematics that function very much like a noun (the concepts of mathematics), while others function more like a verb (procedures, which many think of as “actually ‘doing’ math”). Such ideas form the basis for later, more formalized procedures. The role technology can play in visualizing these ideas for learners should not be overlooked. This paper will model such dual development utilizing both digital fabrication and quadratic explorations.
