Thought about trying one of the ITSCoRe Techtivities? Want to help students to move beyond what graphs look like to what graphs represent? In a February 2018 Edutopia blog post, Heather Johnson shares how the Cannon Man Techtivity can help.
ITSCoRe at the 2018 RUME Conference: Let’s provide opportunities for students to engage in covariational reasoning Date: Friday, February 23 Time: 9:20-9:50, PST Location: Coronado Room, Kona Kai Resort, San Diego Networking Theories to Design Dynamic Covariation Techtivities for College
Gary Olson, ITSCoRe project co-PI, will be discussing the ITSCoRe project scope and goals at the Joint Mathematics Meetings this week in San Diego, CA. Since the printing of our poster, we have had a few personnel changes and additions.
We have two new members of our ITSCoRe project team: Amber Gardner and Amy Smith Amber and Amy will participate as graduate research assistants. Together, they bring over two decades of experience in K-12 education. The work of ITSCoRe will
We have a set of 5 dynamic computer activities, “Techtivities,” developed in collaboration with Dan Meyer and the team at Desmos. The Techtivities link animations with dynamic graphs, in innovative and exciting ways. Students working on the Techtivities can
