Explore Dynamic Math Software at NCTM Conference

Cool Flipbook
In the last blog Karen Greenhaus commented: "Thanks for mentioning the Sketchpad Explorer for the iPad! There are a lot of folks from Key Curriculum and KCP Tech doing presentations (Nick Jackiw, Scott Steketee, Daniel Scher, Bill Finzer, Cliff Konold, myself) with Sketchpad, TinkerPlots and Fathom. As always, focused on dynamic mathematics and using technology appropriately to engage students in learning math."

NCTM agrees. They highlighted these two presentations that Karen suggested:
  • Nick Jackiw, 
Key Curriculum Press Technologies, Inc.
 "Euclid’s Elements: An Interactive Geometry Perspective" - more
  • Cliff Konold, 
University of Massachusetts Amherst.
 "Breathing Life into Data and Chance with Tinkerplots 2.0" - more
Here's the other three mentioned by Karen (including hers):
  • Scott Steketee, 
Key Curriculum Press Technologies, Inc. has two sessions:

    • "A Dynamic Number Approach to Mulitiplication" - more
    • "Function Composition without Confusion: A Geometric Approach with Sketchpad® 5" - more
  • Daniel Scher, 
Key Curriculum Press Technologies, Inc."Dynamic Fractions in the Elementary School Classroom" - more
  • Bill Finzer, Key Curriculum Press Technologies, Inc. "Data Games: Learn Math Achieve Victory through Data Analysis" -more
  • Karen Greenhaus, "Using Appropriate Tools in Elementary Math: From Physical to Virtual" - more
CLIME is working on a dynamic list of the technology sessions that you can update by contacting the CLIME office. It will updated almost immediately!

Karen also points out that (in addition to the BuzzHub, and our CLIME Booth in the exhibit hall): "...Key will be doing a lot [in their booth], so [I] just wanted to pass that along so folks can come by and play with math and technology...we will have iPads and computers to explore." 

Sounds good. The exhibit hall will be a good place to discover vendors who are promoting this dynamic vision of exploration tools. I'll spotlight some of them in the next issue of this CLIME Connections blog.
