Quick Reads: Using Technology to Build a Pen for Browser

a good idea in a small package

Leigh Haltiwanger, Robert M. Horton, and Brooke Lance

Making mathematics meaningful is a challenge that all math teachers endeavor to meet. As math teachers, we spend countless hours crafting problems that will energize students and help them connect mathematical topics to their everyday lives. Being successful in our efforts requires that we allow students to explore ideas before we provide explanations and demands that we ask questions to promote a depth of thinking and reasoning that would not occur without such probing (Marshall and Horton 2009).
