Technology-enabled Mathematics Education explores how teachers of mathematics are using digital technologies to enhance student engagement in classrooms, from the early years through to the senior years of school.

The research underpinning this book is grounded in real classrooms. The chapters offer 10 rich case studies of mathematics teachers who have become exemplary users of technology. Each case study includes the voices of leaders, teachers and their students, providing insights into their practices, beliefs and perceptions of mathematics and technology-enabled teaching. These insights inform an exciting new theoretical model, the Technology Integration Pyramid, for guiding teachers and researchers as they endeavour to understand the complexities involved in planning for effective teaching with technology.

This book is a unique resource for educational researchers and students studying primary and secondary mathematics teaching, as well as practising mathematics teachers.
