There has been a general consensus among industry watchers, educational executives and several other stakeholders on the need to continually demonstrate the promotion of critical thinking and practical interdisciplinary education for engineering technology students. They also agreed that instructions of many practical technical applications require the utilization of mathematical concepts necessary for parametric analysis and problems solving methods. Problem solving is characteristics of mathematical activity and an important way of developing mathematical and analytical knowledge. A main purpose of mathematics teaching and learning is to develop the ability to solve a wide variety of complex mathematics problems. However, the process of problem solving in mathematics has not been given the proper recognition, probably due to the fact that teachers themselves are not comfortable with problem solving. As a result, teachers do not teach the process and technique of problem solving as an integral part of mathematics learning process. This paper aims at conducting an indebt literature survey and unveils the roles and importance of mathematics teaching and learning through the use of technological applications. To investigate prospective mathematics teachers’ beliefs on technology usage in classroom mathematical problem solving. Also make recommendations to educational policy makers and other stakeholders in the industry for proper and timely decision making.
