Vol. 1, No. 2, March 2013
Two technology-involved tasks are presented that have been used in mathematics pedagogy courses to ostensibly give preservice secondary mathematics teachers (PSMTs) sample activities they can use in their teaching or use to assess their own future students' ability to apply trigonometric functions in contextual situations with technology. The tasks are posed for two other purposes: To provide occasions for PSMTs to self-assess their
technology knowledge, and subsequently take action to learn mathematics and technology features; and to use such tasks as springboards for substantive discussions about teaching.
The two videos mentioned in the article are available below.
