Space: Not the Final Frontier!

An excursion from FlatLand to 3D Space and beyond.- Some Perspectives on School Reform and Evaluation
Striking a balance between challenge and support:

Creating an effective mathematics learning environment.New tools, new questions:

Recognising and using good mathematical software.Algebraic Thinking within a Technology-Rich Learning Environment.Cross-Curricular Graphic Calculators: Tools for All Tastes:

A quiet revolution is occurring in classroom technology, as graphic calculators become more like handheld computers than calculators. Word processing, spreadsheeting and a growing range of high-quality software applications are transforming these tools, and schools may soon find that technology for every student in every class is closer than you think!
