Strategic Use of Technology in High School

Mathematics Classrooms

— Natalie Valla

Abstract: This study examines how exemplary secondary mathematics

teachers integrate technology into their classroom instruction. Through in-

terviews, this research explores how teachers select appropriate technologies

and plan instructional applications that support teaching and learning math-

ematical concepts. Classroom observations provide an in-depth description

of teachers lessons, including how teachers and students use the technology.

Case studies, constructed from the data, are analyzed through the lenses of

teacher thinking, student engagement, and the mathematical concepts sup-

ported by the technology. This research opens a window into the thinking of

expert mathematics teachers. Like the technology these exemplary teachers

use, the study makes visible the complexities of teaching and provides a rich

description of instruction in technology-rich mathematics classrooms.
