Beliefs, Attitudes, Affect, Conceptions


In this lecture I will share some beliefs of a mathematics teacher at a public secondary school and their influence on their students' beliefs, principally concerning the topic of functions and the use of digital technologies in the process of teaching and learning mathematics.

The research carried out was qualitative, and the information was obtained by the application of several instruments and by classroom observation.
