Yes, Yes, Yes! I thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to learn something new and exiting! I hope that I can raise the interest level of my students with these thought provoking activities. I recommend this class for all Algebra teachers.

Technology certainly has it's benefits in the world of education, but sometimes I wonder how beneficial it is for students to totally depend upon it. Students who cannot function without a calculator are of great concern to me. I strive daily to empower students to believe in their basic ability to add, subtract, multiply and divide without using a calculator. However, graphing and finding solutions to an equation are best performed by the graphing calculator to save time.
