|Subject Overview:||This subject examines how the teaching of mathematics in upper primary and secondary schools and beyond can be enhanced by the use of new computer and calculator technologies. The impact on curriculum, on presentation, on teaching, on assessment and on ways of doing mathematics will be considered. The main focus will be on the use of software and calculators that are mathematically able, open platforms that provide opportunities for changed pedagogies. Participants will have the opportunity to develop new skills for teaching with technology, to study theories underlying educational uses and theories of representation in mathematics, and to review products and examine their educational uses.
