Moving from Occasional to Regular Use of ICT in Mathematics Classes

Brief description of project

This research investigated aspects of teaching and learning over sustained periods with ICT in upper secondary mathematics classes. The the research foci were:

  • Continuity and change in patterns of teaching and learning
  • Teachers' preparation and use of resources
  • Teachers and students' attitudes and teachers' confidence

The project ran in the 1998-99 school year. 13 teacher researchers, none of whom had made extended use of ICT in their mathematics lessons before, made significant use of ICT with one of their classes. Teachers chose the software/hardware they used. Teachers worked with 14-19 academic stream classes and used, between them, spreadsheets, graphic calculators and packages, interactive geometry and computer algebra systems.
