Summary: Computer use in the mathematics classroom can support the development of students’ mathematical competency through specific insightful approaches. For a best-practice framing of learning opportunities supported by computer use, mathematics teachers need specific pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), including views about computer use which are likely to filier the further development of such PCK. However, the empirical evidence base in this research domain still needs to be broadened. This paper thus reports findings from two studies about such PCK of 39 pre-service and 65 in-service teachers. The evidence suggests specific professional development needs, but also that it is possible to develop PCK related to computer use.
