Secondary mathematics teacher education programs across the United States opportunities for preservice teachers to make connections and encounter technology to varying degrees, despite recommendations from the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences. We explore the research question: What opportunities do secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs provide for preservice teachers to learn about connections and to encounter technologies in learning algebra and learning to teach algebra? We present patterns and examples of a wide range of opportunities that instructors provided related to algebraic connections and use of technology, based on data collected from five teacher education programs across the U.S.
