title = "Applets and paper & pencil tasks as resources for working with mathematical representations",

abstract = "Integrating applets into mathematics lessons is a challenge for elementary school teachers. The current study aims to evaluate to what extent applets chosen by the teachers functioned as resources, as compared to paper & pencil resources in mathematics lessons. In this study 42 teachers used, for the first time, applet activities in their lesson as well as paper & pencil tasks. The analysis focused on two mathematical aspects: The mathematical content and the required competence when engaging with representations. The findings show that teachers tended to prefer the applet activity over the paper & pencil task regarding representations. Furthermore, teachers preferred activities that move from the concrete to the abstract and not the opposite, regardless of the resource type.",
