Preservice Teachers Conceptions of Mathematics-Based Software
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education,
Preservice teachers do not feel prepared to teach mathematics using technology (Smith & Shotsberger, 2001). To address this issue, we have developed a tool-based categorization of mathematics software and used it to instruct preservice teachers. Changes in thinking that occurred as a result of the course are analyzed primarily using repertory grid techniques supported by heuristic questions, reflections and Internet communication group correspondence.
