Mathematics Teacher Vol. 97, No. 4 (Apr 01, 2004) pp. 294–298
Directions for using a function called Mail Merge in Microsoft Office are mentioned. Using a spreadsheet and mail merge, allows one to create different assessments, complete with worked solutions, generate them on demand or save them for later use.
The Role of a Dynamic Software Program for Geometry in the Strategies High School Mathematics Students Employ
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education Vol. 38, No. 2 (March 2007) pp. 164–192
This study investigated the ways in which the technological tool, The Geometer's Sketchpad, mediated the understandings that high school Honors Geometry students developed about geometric transformations by focusing on their uses of technological...
Preparing to Teach Mathematics with Technology: An Integrated Approach to Developing Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 8, No. 4 (December 2008) pp. 326–341
Several organizations have highlighted the importance of preparing teachers to teach students mathematics using appropriate technology (e.g., Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators, 2006; International Society for Technology in Education, 2008)...
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 48, No. 8 (2017) pp. 1166–1184
Three textbooks from Brazil and three textbooks from the United States were analysed with a focus on similarity and context-based tasks. Students' opportunities to learn similarity were examined by considering whether students were provided context...
Journal of Mathematical Behavior Vol. 25, No. 3 (2006) pp. 252–266
The design of technology tools has the potential to dramatically influence how students interact with tools, and these interactions, in turn, may influence students' mathematical problem solving. To better understand these interactions, we analyzed...
Teachers' Analysis of Student Thinking in a Teaching Mathematics with Technology Massive Open Online Course for Educators
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 26, No. 4 (2018) pp. 587–612
This research study examined the ways participants analyzed students' mathematical thinking in a Teaching Mathematics with Technology Massive Open Online Course for Educators. 179 discussion forum posts made by 35 highly engaged participants were...
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 12, No. 2 (June 2012) pp. 232–254
As the nation’s economy continues its irrevocable shift from manufacturing toward idea-driven, creative industries, our schools — and the teaching and learning enterprise at the heart of our schools — need to undergo a transformation as well. The...
Understanding Prospective Mathematics Teachers' Processes for Making Sense of Students' Work with Technology
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education Vol. 42, No. 1 (January 2011) pp. 39–64
This study investigated the processes used by prospective mathematics teachers as they examined middle-school students' work solving statistical problems using a computer software program. Ways in which the model may be used by other researchers and ...
The Nature of Arguments Provided by College Geometry Students with Access to Technology while Solving Problems
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education Vol. 41, No. 4 (July 2010) pp. 324–350
Prior research on students' uses of technology in the context of Euclidean geometry has suggested that it can be used to support students' development of formal justifications and proofs. This study examined the ways in which students used a dynamic ...
Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 64, No. 6 (2016) pp. 1227–1249
Given the importance of teacher in the implementation of computer technology in classrooms, the technology acceptance model and TPACK model were used to better understand the decision-making process teachers use in determining how, when, and where...
Factors that influence secondary mathematics teachers' integration of technology in mathematics lessons
Computers & Education Vol. 123, No. 1 (August 2018) pp. 26–40
While many studies describe the use of technology in the mathematics classroom, few explore the factors that influence teacher decisions around its use. The participants in this study were 21 early career secondary mathematics teachers who had...
