Abstract

This paper reports on a study of 18 pre-service mathematics teachers’ pedagogical thinking when using online applets in their lesson planning. The applets facilitate the investigation of mathematical relationships. The goal of the study was to identify factors affecting the pedagogical thinking of pre-service teachers when planning mathematics lessons with the applets. The study indicates that use of the applets was one of several factors mediating pre-service teacher thinking, and typically not the major factor. Other factors were the mathematics topic, pre-service teachers’ pedagogical beliefs, personal mathematics knowledge, comfort with technology, classroom management concerns, past mathematics learning and teaching experiences, and recent teacher education experiences.
