ab: From the text: The Principles and standards for school mathematics [Reston,
VA: NCTM (2000)] state, “Technology is essential in teaching and
learning mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and
enhances students’ learning." (p. 24). The mathematics classroom can
be one in which calculators, computers, courseware, and manipulative
materials are readily available and regularly used in instruction.
Graphing calculators with computer algebra system (CAS) and other
software such as Geometer’s Sketchpad, Fathom, and GeoGebra are now
used in many educational settings. This article discusses free
user-friendly software that can be an effective addition to the
curriculum of many high school and college courses.
