Abstract
There is no refuting fact that in teaching and learning of mathematics in Colleges of Education, technologies such as Computers, the Internet, Electronic/smart boards, Email and smart phones, have changed the concept, beliefs, perceptions and practices of mathematics Tutors. Technology and Internet are used in enhancing the methodology of mathematics Education. Apart from the commercial importance of technology, it is seen as a pedagogical tool for effective teaching and learning. The last two decades have witnessed innovative change in the academia due to the use of technology in teaching and learning. This rapid change and development of information technology has offered a better way to discover new teaching models. Using multimedia to create a context to teach mathematics has its exceptional advantages. This paper analyzes the necessity of multimedia technology to the teaching of mathematics in Colleges of Education and will also bring out the barriers that hinder the usage of technologies in teaching mathematics. The authors are of the view that the use of multimedia and various technologies in teaching mathematics will surely motivate the learners’ interest, create a better interaction and provide interactive environment for both Tutors and students to increase the teaching and learning efficiency of mathematics.
