Two studies of the Math Forum's Online Mentoring Guide (OMG) address whether and how online comprehension tools might support mathematics learning. In Study 1, the culture of the preservice teachers' (PTs') mathematics classroom and their work with the OMG and its impact on their developing comprehension of mathematics and mentoring is described. In Study 2, the impact of content-informed scaffolding of PTs' work with the OMG is investigated.
