This paper shares technology, techniques, and a more demanding use of the mathematical register to promote a better understanding of mathematics within a teacher preparation program. Knowledge of mathematics managed under these higher expectations should inevitably promote more creative and productive thinking that will extend to the elementary, middle and high school classrooms. Experts in knowledge and knowledge management are reminding us of the need to produce more curious, inventive, and productive math/science instruction to satisfy the technological needs of the twenty-first century. This presentation will share examples of how this is already being done at a university teacher-preparation program.
