Connell, Michael; Abramovich, Sergei – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
This paper illustrates how the notion of Technology Immune Technology Enabled (TITE) problems (Abramovich, 2014), in this case an exploration of variations in surface area we refer to as Stamping Functions, might be incorporated into a K-6 mathematics methods class operating within an Action on Objects framework (Connell, 2001). TITE problems have…

Abramovich, Sergei; Connell, Michael – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
The paper reflects on an earlier research on the use of technology in secondary mathematics teacher education through the lenses of newer digital tools (Wolfram Alpha, Maple), most recent standards for teaching mathematics, and recommendations for the preparation of schoolteachers. New ideas of technology integration into mathematics education…

Abramovich, Sergei; Brouwer, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
This paper was prepared in response to the Conference Board of Mathematical Sciences recommendations for the preparation of secondary teachers. It shows how using trigonometry as a conceptual tool in spreadsheet-based applications enables one to develop mathematical understanding in the context of constructing geometric representations of unit…

Abramovich, Sergei; Brouwer, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
This paper was developed with the goal of enhancing the mathematical preparation of secondary school teachers in the technological paradigm. It shows how two-variable inequalities can be utilized as models for the construction of geometric objects using the software Graphing Calculator 3.5 (produced by Pacific Tech) as a relation grapher. An…

Abramovich, Sergei; Cho, Eun Kyeong – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
This article attempts to extend current research and development activities related to the use of technology in problem posing, to early grades mathematics. It is motivated by the authors' work with elementary preservice teachers toward this goal, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. New York State Learning Standards for K-4 mathematics…

Abramovich, Sergei; Brown, Gary – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1999
Shows how the joint use of a dynamic geometry program and a spreadsheet can provide a computational environment for exploring geometry on plane lattices that lessens the risk of developing the false empiricist view of mathematics often associated with the use of information technology. Contains 17 references. (Author/ASK)

Abramovich, Sergei; Nabors, Wanda – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1998
Suggests that using the iconic and computing features of a spreadsheet enhances the transition from natural language sentences to pictorial and numerical representations of algebraic word problems. Presents work performed in a lab setting with preservice and inservice teachers enrolled in contemporary general mathematics and problem-solving…
