ab: Summary: The purpose of the study is to determine prospective mathematics
teachersâ€™ views about using computer-based instructional materials in
constructing mathematical concepts and to reveal how the sample
computer-based instructional materials for different mathematical
concepts altered their views. This is a qualitative study involving
twelve prospective secondary mathematics teachers from a public
university in Turkey. The data were gathered from two semi-structural
interviews named pre-interview and post-interview. Between these
interviews computer-based instructional materials were introduced to
the participants. Findings revealed that the participants had positive
perceptions toward these materials and believed that such tools help
integrating mathematics and daily life. (Contains 5 tables and 6
figures.) (ERIC)
