With advances in information and communication technology, it is not possible to avoid the impact of technology on mathematical problem solving. Among those technologies, there has been a steady increase in interest in using hand-held technologies, in particular graphing calculators, by mathematics educators and curriculum developers and teachers (Kissane, 2000). Using graphing calculators in learning mathematics will allow students to explore and model mathematical problems and create multiple representations of mathematical problems. Technology that supports multiple representations can increase students’ use of visualization in problem solving and enhance understanding (Center for Technology in Learning, 2007).
