About collaborative work

exploring the functional world in a computer-enriched environment

Carmen Sessa

pp. 581-599

The purpose of this paper is to address two main concerns in mathematics education. The first is finding ways of bridging the gap between the worldviews of a university research team and secondary school mathematics teachers. The second is meaningful and implementable ways of introducing technological tools in regular classrooms in order to teach and explore functional relationships. Whereas these two issues have been discussed in the literature, this contribution blends these two issues in the context of Argentina while proposing general insights for the mathematics education community at large. This paper outlines and describes the different stages of the formation and functioning of a collaborative team of researchers and teachers and discusses some didactical complexities encountered.
