This paper reports from a study of the ViT (Visualization of Transformations) project. The aim of the ViT project was to develop and test an interactive tool for linear algebra and publish it on the project’s website http://kurs.uib.no/vit/ovelser.hml. This study explored the teachers’ implementation of the ViT project from a sociocultural perspective. The research question was: What driving forces and what obstacles can be identified for implementation of a concrete change towards integration of visualization tools in a linear algebra course? Data for the study includes interviews with the teachers and the rest of the project group, students’ answers to two questionnaires and tasks from the linear algebra course.
