ab: Summary: We present 2 technology-involved tasks that we use in our
mathematics pedagogy courses to ostensibly give peservice secondary
mathematics teachers (PSMTs) sample activities they can use in their
teaching or use to assesss their own future studentsâ€™ ability to
apply trigonometric functions in contextual situations using
technology. However, we have two other purposes for posing these tasks.
One purpose is to provide occasions for PSMTs to self-assess their
mathematical and technology knowledge, and subsequentiy take action to
learn mathematics and technology features. The other purpose is to use
such tasks as springboards for substantive discussions about teaching,
learning, technology, and assessment. Such simulation tasks have
engaged PSMTs and helped them develop their knowledge base for teaching
mathematics.
