@article{Doerr2000CreatingMF, title={Creating Meaning for and with the Graphing Calculator}, author={H. Doerr and Roxana Zangor}, journal={Educational Studies in Mathematics}, year={2000}, volume={41}, pages={143-163} }

In this study, we seek to describe how the meaning of a tool was co-constructed by the students and their teacher and how the students used the tool to construct mathematical meaning out of particular tasks. We report the results of a qualitative, classroom-based study that examined (1) the role, knowledge and beliefs of a pre-calculus teacher, (2)how students used graphing calculators in support of their learning of mathematics, (3) the relationship and interactions between the teacher's role… CONTINUE READING
