Uncovering Hidden Mathematics of the Multiplication Table Using Spreadsheets

By Sergei Abramovich

Abstract

This paper reveals a number of learning activities emerging from a spreadsheetgenerated multiplication table. These activities are made possible by using such features of the software as conditional formatting, circular referencing, calculation through iteration, scroll bars, and graphing. The paper is a reflection on a mathematics content course designed for prospective elementary teachers using the hidden mathematics curriculum framework. It is written in support of standards for teaching and recommendations for teachers in North America. Submitted October 2006; revised and accepted April 2007. Key words: multiplication table, hidden mathematics curriculum, teacher education
