Alsaeed, Maha Saad
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v10 n2 p121-136 2017
During the past decades, technological resources have been improved to support the teaching of mathematics. While the improvement of technological resources, the World Wide Web provides teachers and students many resources that engage students in rich mathematics experiences. There are a vast number of educational resources available through the Internet for students and teachers, which should be implemented in the classroom to support and improve algebra instructions. This study seeks to identify the extent of the middle school teacher's awareness of using the Internet to teach and develop students' learning of algebra. The participant's teachers in this study are teaching in schools located in a rural Appalachian region of a Midwestern state in the United States. The study found that the Internet's function in the algebra classroom within this particular group of middle childhood teachers are used for purposes that do not contribute to algebra instruction.
