Seeing connections Multiple, dynamic representations (for example, linking formulae, tables of numbers and graphs) give opportunities for: students making their own understandings gives the pupil a sense of power and control over the mathematics

Working with Dynamic Images Manipulation of diagrams dynamically: Unlocks the power of visual imagery gives a sense of authorship to the pupil fosters a sense of confidence in one’s ability to visualise mathematics and hence to think mathematically
Image of page 6
Exploring data ICT allows pupils access to real data and its representation, interpretation and modelling ownership of this process enhances the pupils’ sense of authority access to different models encourages reflection and critique about models used in other situations access to multiple representations encourages reflection and critique of other representations

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
