Gunpinar, Yasemin; Pape, Stephen – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate the ways that teachers use connected classroom technology (CCT) in conjunction with the Texas Instruments Nspire calculator to potentially support achievement on Algebra problems that require translation between representations (i.e., symbolic to graphical). Four Algebra I classrooms that initially…
