From the textbook to the enacted curriculum: Textbook use in the middle school mathematics classroom
ChávezLópez, Óscar, 1963 (University of MissouriColumbia, 2003)The dissertation study reported here describes how teachers use districtadopted mathematics curriculum materials and other curricular resources. Analysis of survey data, textbook diaries, and classroom observations was ... 
Geometry, Technology, and the Reasoning and Proof Standard in the Middle Grades with the Geometer's Sketchpad
ChávezLópez, Óscar, 1963 (200210)Proofs are an essential part of mathematics. Sketchpad is not a tool for proving, rather it is a tool that can generate examples that can help students to reason inductively and make conjectures. 
Geometry, Technology, and the Reasoning and Proof Standard in the Middle Grades with the Geometer's Sketchpad
ChávezLópez, Óscar, 1963 (200210)This presentation discusses the software Geometer's Sketchpad and its relation to learning standards for elementary and secondary students.

Learning probability with Fathom
ChávezLópez, Óscar, 1963 (20051202)This presentation discusses what standards and research say about the learning of probability, dice and coins with Fathom, and how to solve problems by doing simulations. Fathom is a software useful in high school Algebra ... 
Promoting algebraic thinking in the middle grades using spreadsheets
ChávezLópez, Óscar, 1963 (200212)The purpose of this activity is to create spreadsheets that would help students to develop an algebraic approach to some problems. Spreadsheets will be created that perform repeated calculations. Through this activity, ... 
Promoting Algebraic Thinking in the MiddleGrades Using Spreadsheets
ChávezLópez, Óscar, 1963 (200304)What is Algebra? For most people, algebra means using and manipulating (algebraic) symbols, and solving equations. The Algebra Standard, as it is stated in the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, expects more ... 
Using GeoGebra in Secondary Mathematics
ChávezLópez, Óscar, 1963 (20090223)In this workshop, we will explore what GeoGebra can do as an example of dynamic geometry software. GeoGebra has two very important advantages over other similar programs: it is free, and it can save documents as HTML pages ... 
Using spreadsheets to foster algebraic reasoning in the middle school mathematics classroom
ChávezLópez, Óscar, 1963 (20030411)What is Algebra? For most people, algebra means using and manipulating (algebraic) symbols, and solving equations. The Algebra Standard, as it is stated in the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, expects more ... 
Using standardsbased curricula in the middle grades: What can go wrong?
ChávezLópez, Óscar, 1963 (20031205)Textbooks have been at the center of heated debate in mathematics education in the United States.Teachers play a critical role as ultimate decision makers regarding how is their curriculum enacted in the classroom. Their ...
