This study uses qualitative research methods to examine why a senior secondary teacher who was experienced in teaching mathematics and using computers would not use either generic software such as spreadsheets, or exploratory software (e.g. Maths Helper) in his teaching of mathematics. The teachersâ€™ beliefs about the nature of secondary mathematics, the nature of teaching, his own teaching practice and assessment issues underpinned his rejection of the use of computers in the classroom.
