Abstract

Abstract: Dick (2007) introduces pedagogical, mathematical, and cognitive fidelity to computer designers to help them design math related technology, but the same terminology and direction can be applied by teachers to choose technology to use in the mathematics classroom. In order to guide students’ thinking and to prepare future and current teachers to use technology enhanced math objects, teachers also need to know what pedagogical, mathematical and cognitive fidelity are and be able to design lessons faithful to these principles. The purpose of this paper is to describe a pilot program designed to teach the principles of pedagogical, mathematical, and cognitive fidelity to pre-service and in-service teachers. (Keywords: technology, pedagogical, mathematical, cognitive, fidelity)
