Abstract

The purpose of this study is to look at the changes that computers have made in mathematics itself and in the mathematics curriculum. The aim of the study is to investigate the various applications of computers in education in general, especially in mathematics education, and their application in the mathematics curriculum and in the teaching and learning of mathematics. The primary use of educational tools for mathematical purposes is the quality verification of results. There are various tools for developing student logic based on interactivity. Mathematics education tools are designed for innovative, interactive, and dynamic learning in different areas of mathematics. It is undeniable that the use of computers and mathematical software has great benefits that have been proven and presented in their works by numerous researchers of effective learning. It is also indisputable that one of the main tasks of teaching mathematics is the development of students’ constructive thinking. This work aims to describe the application of educational tools with which it can develop interactivity and help pupils and students to better and more clearly understand mathematics and to understand that it is all around us, that it is our everyday life.
