Abstract
Technology helps make mathematics richer and more experimental. In this
lecture we look at the following four issues in the use of technology
related to mathematics education. (1) When should we and when should we
not use technology? (2) How should application software be taught? (3)
What application software should we choose and use? (4) How do we handle
the problems we encounter when we apply technology to mathematics teaching?
Illustrations will be taken from the Singapore experience.
