Abstract

Technology according to the National Council of Mathematics plays a special role in teaching and learning mathematics. Technology when used effectively can deepen mathematical understanding and lead to greater abstraction. But, not all uses of technology lead to this desired result. Defining cognitive and mathematical fidelity and using it to determine which Web-based formats lead to greater generalizing and abstraction will help in understanding why interactive math objects empower teachers to build a better, deeper understanding of math concepts. (Contains 2 tables.)
