Abstract

Technology has been considered as an important principle in the NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics in the United States. The emergence of Web 2.0 technologies provides another avenue for the effective use of technology in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Additionally, studies have found that American students spend more time with Web 2.0 applications than any other age group. Thus, Web 2.0 technologies that allow Internet users to collaborate and share web information actively (O'Reilly, 2005) have a great potential to promote teaching and learning mathematics. This, paper focuses on the current states of mathematics education in the U.S.; the effect of technology on U.S. mathematics education; and a prospective way to use a Web 2.0 technology in promoting mathematics education in the United States.
