Technology in the classroom has become an essential tool for understanding and learning. According to Pierce and Ball (2009) the students’ attitudes toward math improve when they work with technology in classes. They also have a deeper understanding of the subject. Students can play around with mathematical concepts by using different tools, such as calculators and online manipulative tools. However, incorporating appropriate technology into math classes requires careful thought and a thorough understanding of how it works.

One of the major benefits of integrating technology in mathematics classes is that teachers can come up with more creative ways to teach the subject. This is due to the fact that some of the newer digital tools are designed to harness students’ visual and modeling power. For example, software applications allow students to build 3D geometric models of objects like cubes and cones in a way that aids students understand the characteristics and shapes of these objects.

In addition the most efficient technological tools help students free up their working memory so that they can focus on problem formulation and modeling. They also help students create public records of their thoughts that can be easily transported, modified and easily shared with colleagues and teachers. This approach aims to bridge the gap between informal knowledge of students and formal mathematical structures and science phenomena.
