ab: Summary: The author documents the essential features of the development
process. Why has technology failed to become commonplace in the A-Level
mathematics classroom? Is it that, in terms of the hardware and the
software, there are too many options on offer and too many choices to
be made? Maybe expense is cited as a significant reason? Or is it
simply that the use of technology is not a requirement of the
assessment and final examination? Here, by including technology in the
examination format, the use of technology to support the teaching and
learning of mathematics is ensured. First assessment is in 2013 \dots
is this the shape of things to come at A-level?
