The Relationship Between Math and Technologies

The connection between maths and technologies has an impact on students performance and understanding. The use of technology in a thoughtful manner is a way to make students more involved in their learning process, provide personalized experiences and help diverse learners.

Software and hardware for maths such as spreadsheets, graphing calculators and dynamic geometry environments enable students to interact with math in a visually appealing, interactive and engaging way. They can also complete calculations quickly and effortlessly that are difficult or time-consuming using traditional pencil and paper methods. This software and hardware helps students develop deeper understanding of concepts by allowing them to visualize the processes involved and allowing them to play with their understanding of mathematical principles through trial and error (Jeng and colleagues. 2010).

Students who use ICT for math display an optimistic attitude towards the subject and they demonstrate a greater knowledge of mathematics. This is due to the fact ICT technology encourages students to experiment with new methods and strategies which they aren’t likely to use with traditional tools. In addition to that, the ICT helps students collaborate in ways that aren’t possible in a face-to- contact setting. This helps them build a sense of community with other students interested in learning the same topics.

It is also evident that technology can be used to teach math when it is used in conjunction with other subjects, such as science or even history. When students use ICT to help them comprehend the complexities of other subjects, they tend to are more aware of those subjects as well as the ability to apply their knowledge to real world problems.
