Learning Math as a Creative Experience with Spreadsheets

UMASS Amherst

MTA Summer Conference Guide
OUR WORKSHOP: What if your students had the opportunity to learn mathematics in new ways, observe patterns, experience connections between varieties of representations and generate their own solutions to interesting problems? In this 2-session workshop you will have the chance to be such a student and prepare to implement this learning methodology in your classroom. In the first session, you will be introduced to and work on some spreadsheet labs designed for learning mathematics, spreadsheet skills and creative problem solving. In the second session, you will continue your work on spreadsheet labs and develop a plan to implement spreadsheet labs for learning with your students.
PRESENTERS: Peter Mili, MTA Retired; Art Bardige, President, Sustainablearning.
