Computers in the Classroom

  • Lynn Arthur Steen

Abstract

Mathematics by tradition has been a subject requiring only the simplest of tools. For Archimedes, it was sufficient to have a stick and some sand; for Fermat, larger margins in his books might have helped. Even for modern research mathematicians, the normal tools are a bookcase, a blackboard, and a large waste basket.
