ab: Summary: In the article, three Danish secondary level mathematics
teachers’ beliefs about the use of technological tools in the
teaching of mathematics and their beliefs about mathematics as a
scientific discipline are identified and classified ‒ and the process
also aspects of their beliefs about the teaching and learning of
mathematics. The potential relationships between these sets of beliefs
are also explored. Results show that the teachers not only manifest
different beliefs about the use of technology and mathematics as a
discipline, but that one set of beliefs can influence the other set of
beliefs. The article concludes with a discussion of the research
findings and their validity as well as their implications for both
practice and research in mathematics education.
