ab: To help mathematics educators realise the power of computer-based
applications and modelling, this paper deals with four questions: (a)
What implications does technology have for the range of applications
and modelling problems that can be introduced? (b) In what cases does
technology facilitate the learning of applications and modelling? (c)
When may technology enrich learning possibilities? (d) Can applications
and modelling be successfully done without any technology? Answers to
these questions are based upon the IBMT (Interaction Between
Mathematics and Technology) principle: "When using mathematics, don’t
forget available tool(s); when utilizing tool, don’t forget the
underlying mathematics". (Abstract)
