The technology principle in the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM, 2000) states that technology plays an important role in how teachers teach mathematics and in how students learn mathematics. The purpose of this sequential explanatory mixed methods study was to examine the impact of interactive applets on students’ understanding of parameter changes to parent functions. Interviews with students and teachers provided insight on how and why the use of applets helped or hindered students’ understanding.
