Graphing calculators are being used primarily in mathematics courses, but the latest handheld devices have the potential to be used in all subject areas. Many predict that such devices will become the tools most students will use in the future. This session will demonstrate a variety of handheld devices (with different platforms) equipped with graphing calculator, word processing, spreadsheet, printing, browsing, and other educational software. This hands-on session will focus primarily on secondary mathematics.

Studying Teacher Learning from Cases and Other Practice-Based Materials

Margaret S. Smith, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA

Edward A. Silver, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI

For the past several years we have been developing practice-based materials for the education of mathematics teachers under the auspices of the NSF-funded COMET (Cases of Mathematics Instruction to Enhance Teaching) Project. Recently, we have begun to use these materials in teacher education settings and to systematically study their implementation and impact. Drawing on data collected from a course on proportionality in which various kinds of practice-based materials were interwoven, we will engage participants in analyzing data that focuses on both the processes of course enactment (e.g. videotape of a class session, work completed by teachers) and the pre- and post-knowledge of course participants. The goal of the session is to use the specific example from the proportionality course to discuss what teachers might learn from cases and other practice-based materials, how they might learn it, and what constitutes evidence of learning.
