Firmly rooted in the NCTM Principles and Standards, Using Technology and Problem Solving in Middle and High School Mathematics examines why technology is essential to today's mathematics classroom, and illustrates how using technology can encourage and enhance students' study and understanding of mathematics. Inquiry-based, this text provides both a five step model and twenty-three sample investigations that demonstrate how to help students become better problem solvers through the use of four types of instructional technology: the scientific calculator, the graphing calculator, spreadsheet software, and The Geometer's Sketchpad software.
