Abstract
Teaching mathematics through multiple representation frameworks presents an openended but complex learning structure. This article elaborates on teaching mathematics for conceptual understanding in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)based environment, by exploring conceptual understanding through multiple representations and addressing some effects of the cognitive tools to teaching and learning mathematics in such environments.
