May 2005, Volume 98, Issue 9, Page 599

Abstract:
Technology is a powerful tool in assisting students in problem solving by allowing for multiple representations. The vignette offered in this article provides insight into ways to solve open-ended problems using multiple technologies. The investigation presented demonstrates how multiple technologies can highlight different aspects of the problem-solving process for students. The technology-based approach allows students to formulate conjectures under different conditions.
