Author: Chantal Buteau
Bio Note: Chantal Buteau is Professor of Mathematics at Brock University (Canada). Since she joined Brock in 2004, she has been teaching an introductory programming-based course for mathematics investigations and applications to mathematics majors and prospective mathematics teachers. Her research interests in education mainly focus on the integration of digital technology for (university) mathematics learning, including programming, CAS, and epistemic mathematics computer games. Buteau currently leads a research project examining students’ appropriation (i.e., instrumentalization) of programming for authentic mathematical exploration, simulation, and applications.
