Resumen

According to NCTM's Principies and Standards for School Mathematics, "Technology is essential in teaching and learning of mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and enhances students' learning." How does research inform this clarion cal! for technology in mathematics teaching and learning? In response to the need to craft appropriate roles for technology in school mathematics new technological approaches have been applied to the teaching and learning of mathematics, and these approaches have been examined by researchers worldwide. The confluence of this cal! for integration of technology, renewed attention to research, and recent significant progress in research on technology and the teaching and learning of mathematics has resulted in the production of two volumes, crafted to inform the field about technology-related mathematics education research. The volumes, the work of 45 authors from seven different countries and over 30 different institutions, attempt to synthesize and interpret the results of research over the past few decades on technology and the teaching and learning of mathematics. Chapters of Research on Technology and the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics: Volume 1-Research Syntheses provide insight into what research suggests about the nature of mathematics learning in technological environments. Included in this volume are syntheses of research on technology in the learning of rational number, algebra, elementary and secondary geometry, mathematical modeling, and calculus. Instead of simply reporting achievement scores of students who use technology in their learning, authors provide thoughtful analyses of bodies of research with the goal of understanding the ways in which technology affects what and how students learn. Two additional chapters in this volume situate research in settings that cut across mathematics content areas. One chapter on teachers and teaching analyzes research in light of a framework for the process of incorporating mathematics technology in classroom practice. The other chapter provides an in-depth look at equity and the use of educational technology in mathematics. Each of the chapters in this volume is written by a team of experts whose own research has provided important guidance to the field.
