AbstractThe use of digital technologies has been proposed as one of the five basic principles of curriculum design in the curriculum document for the secondary mathematics curriculum (CDI, 1998). Since then, the Hong Kong curriculum has undergone continual reforms of different scales, e.g., “Learning to learn” (EDB, 2001), “The future is now: From vision to realisation” (EDB, 2009), and the use of digital technologies in mathematics teaching has been promoted. Textbook is recognized as the potentially implemented curriculum (Johansson, 2005). To what extent has the technology been used and reflected in the junior mathematic textbooks in Hong Kong? A popular textbook series is analysed. Results are categorized into use of calculators, use of computer software and use of supplementary resources. The use of technology varies according to the topics in the different strands, namely, algebra, geometry and data handling
