Abstract

This paper will present a detailed example in which students used technology, in this case a fairly sophisticated authoring system - ToolBook, as a tool to construct their own understandings in mathematics. In doing so, they were able to address two of the more demanding needs in mathematical problem solving: (a) to successfully identify the variables (unknowns) and the information given (data) in the problem and (b) to create links between the data and givens which enable successful problem solution. Technology was a crucial element in this effort by serving as a powerful means of representation for the developing student insights.
