ab: Summary: This case study describes an “out of field” teacher’s use of
the Internet to teach a range of mathematical topics in a modified Year
8 mathematics class. It highlights the importance of three factors for
implementing a discernible web-based teaching strategy: appropriate
choice of web objects, effective “virtual” pedagogy, and technical
support and expertise. Based on these findings, a framework is
suggested for constructing an effective teaching strategy to support
the use of virtual resources in the actual mathematics classroom.
