Taking Teaching out of the Equation with Technology

Michael Todd Edwards, Zheng Yang, Xiang Shen, Tong Xie


In this creative non-fiction essay, the authors share experiences from a morning visit
with preservice mathematics teachers at a local high school. Through a series of vignettes, the
authors share positive and negative encounters with technology as they pose rich questions to
students (and their teacher) in a remedial algebra classroom and observe the use of classroom
management software (CMS) with the same students.
