This article reports on a study of 18 preservice mathematics teachers' pedagogical thinking when using online applets in their lesson planning. The applets facilitate the investigation of mathematical relationships. The goal of the study was to identify factors affecting the pedagogical thinking of preservice teachers when planning mathematics lessons with the applets. The study indicates that use of the applets was one of several factors mediating preservice teacher thinking, and typically not the major factor. Other factors were the mathematics topic, preservice teachers' pedagogical beliefs, personal mathematics knowledge, comfort with technology, classroom management concerns, past mathematics learning and teaching experiences, and recent teacher education experiences.
