This research was conducted to find information about the use of technology by Mathematics teachers in learning and how the didactic form of technology applied by the teachers. Teachers who are in group of the Musyawarah Guru Mata Pelajaran (MGMP) of mathematics at the senior high school in Bintan Regency were the research subjects. To be able to find this information, data was collected by using questionnaires and interviews in the form of a Focus Group Discussion (FGD). The data collected were analyzed descriptively and qualitatively with data reduction techniques, data presentation, and drawing conclusions. Triangulation was then carried out to obtain a holistic picture of the information found. Through this research, it was found that the use of technology in mathematics learning is still very limited due to the consideration of its selection and limited forms of use as well. Furthermore, the consideration of choosing the right software in learning in relation to mathematics content is still very limited. Some limitations in understanding math skills makes teacher hard to distinguish the differences between mathematical work and math skills. Meanwhile, in didactic use of technology, almost all teachers do not understand the third didactic aspect due to a weakness in understanding the definition of mathematical concepts, providing examples of software and how the software is able to accommodate concept development. Some of these things occur because between one and the other are still problems so that teachers cannot build a didactic understanding of the third technology.
