Hundreds of papers are published nowadays arguing that computers have become an integral part of our lives and, as such, should be integrated into educational systems as well (Cf. Eden, Eisenberg, Fischer and Repenning, 1996; Edelson, Pea and Gomez, 1996; Flake, 1996). Since such integration requires a change in teaching methods, teachers play a central role in such a transition. Of course, this is also true in regard to teaching of mathematics. There are many benefits in using computers in our math classes (Cf. Sfard and Leron, 1996). However, as it turns out, the number of high school mathematics teachers who integrate computers into their math classes remains relatively low. This paper tries to explain why this is so, by analyzing the attitudes of prospective high school mathematics teachers towards integration of computers in their future math classes.
