Abstract

This paper describes the use of the free software, to teach graphs of logarithmic functions at an Ethiopian College of Teacher Education. Data comprised two video-recorded lessons and interview data provided by a mathematics teacher educator, and three primary school mathematics pre-service teachers who were in the class of learners. Pre-service teachers using Microsoft Mathematics readily understood and described properties of logarithmic functions as the bases varied. The study highlights the importance of illustrating the use of particular software to teach specific mathematics concepts.
