Spreadsheet Resources for the Learning and Doing of Mathematics
The spreadsheet is a tool that presents opportunities for learners of all ages and abilities to engage in learning and doing mathematics in a novel way. A selection of spreadsheet labs that challenge learners to think and problem solve creatively will be presented, with a focus on functions, functional thinking, and developing the practice of asking ‘what if….’ not ‘what is…’ A rationale will also be presented for bringing the spreadsheet to a prominent place in teaching and learning mathematics.
