As CME Project (published by Pearson Education) was developed, the development team found many cases where technology, especially a Computer Algebra System (CAS), enhanced the desire to develop mathematical “habits of mind.” This session looks at how the development of TI-Nspire™ technology influenced and was influenced by CME’s high school curriculum goals. This session also looks at field-tested approaches to using CAS in order to solve algebraic equations, factor and expand polynomials, look for patterns, understand functional language and make sense of iterative definitions of functions.
