As many researchers have studied, calculators may not be appropriate for all educational situations or all mathematical subjects. However, Ellington (2003) reported that the improvement to problem solving skills was most significant when (a) special curriculum materials were designed for use with the calculator and (b) the type of calculator used was the graphing calculator. The purpose of the study was to identify strengths and limitations in how prospective mathematics teachers use the graphing calculator in teaching mathematics concepts and procedures. This study included both quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis methods, providing an opportunity for presenting a greater diversity of views. , discussion thread and essay data were qualitatively analyzed in the context of the TI-Nspire study in search of recurring themes, informed by the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) framework (Niess, 2008).
