Computers in the Mathematics Curriculum: Spreadsheets
AbstractToday school mathematics stresses the place of information technology, i.e. calculators and computers, in the development of mathematical concepts in students. Calculators (i.e. ordinary, scientific and/or graphic) and computers can be used to provide an ideal environment for teaching the subject. This paper examines how computers can be used to provide an ideal environment for exploring such mathematical topics as statistics (i.e. averages and graphs), solution of equations, sequence and functions.
