The Impact of Digital Technology on the Field Math

With the advent of technology, the use of technology in mathematics curriculum has proved to be a significant component enhancing learning outcomes. According to Rousseau, Christiane, and Yvanp (151), technology has made some topics easier. It enhances the teaching and learning of mathematics to both teachers and students (Bolt 113). The researchers worldwide have examined the role of technology in school mathematics and its associated effects.The introduction of computers in the field of education was aimed to serve three main objectives which include helping students in developing their computer skills normally referred to as IT focus, supporting the aspects of learning for students in order to transform and assess the effect of technology in the education field, narrowing down to mathematics for the purpose of this research and finally using them for extra learning activities. With the use of computers, for instance, using calculators and spreadsheet program in performing arithmetic operations, support more efficient problem-solving approaches. Computers transform the learning process through the introduction of vital and significant changes.Technology has indeed positive and negative effects on mathematics. With technology some mathematical skills have decreased in importance, teachers can use computer-based simulations to carry out complex computations that were not possible to perform without technology (Blume, Glendon, and Mary 161). Long and tedious calculations involving division and graphical representations can better and reasonably be done and interpreted using computers that are less time-consuming. This alludes to the fact that mathematics can be taught more effectively with technology usage.The internet provides access to a variety of information on mathematic topics such as data analysis. Greater emphasis on this topic is based on data analysis tools and computer-generated graphs, giving students an opportunity for gathering, representing, analyzing, and interpreting data in more complex ways.
