This paper presents the results of a pilot study conducted to examine Web- based instructional content for mathematics. Two research questions were posed during the study: (1) how is technology being used to represent mathematical concepts online? and (2) how do the representations work together as a system? A mixed method content analysis design was used in this study to examine instructional content for five concepts ranging from basic to advanced mathematics. The results indicated a positive correlation between non-text representations ·and the total number of representations. Representational function mirrored that found in the taxonomy developed by Shaaron Ainsworth.
