Importance of Technology in Math Education

Must read

Hi there! I am a freelance writer who lives and breaths content on a daily basis. I consider myself to be a living paradox. An old soul trapped in a modern world. A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic and a professional over-thinker. I can't start anything unless I have my coffee. Writing has been and always will be my way of calming the storms in my heart and mind.

Education is said to be mandatory to reach one’s goals in life, some believed that having the right education is a ladder to success. Almost all of us love learning however it is undeniable that there are some subjects and topics that we despise. The majority of people would usually claim they’re poor when it comes to mathematics or science and English. These subjects are indeed tough but I’m sure most of us will agree if I say that mathematics is tougher. A lot of people are poor when it comes to numbers. Good thing there are technological advancements that could make math education fun and easy to learn.

One important device developed to help people learn mathematics easily, calculate and solve complicated solutions, and acts as a tool when solving problems given in an examination is a calculator. There are different types of calculators, those that have the basic functions and those that are called scientific calculators.

The use of such technology increases the learning quality of students, especially in mathematics. Unlike before, this machine performs the basic operation of just adding, subtracting, dividing, and multiplying. However, because of technological discoveries and development, this simple machine can now do a lot more! Thanks to technology, people can now make use of algebraic symbols in their calculators. This is why calculators are perfect in terms of math education.

In the past, when calculators were not invented, people would solve solutions with the use of paper and pencil, in other words solving equations is done manually. It takes time for students to learn and see the beauty of numbers.

Now, because of these useful gadgets, teaching mathematics is made easier, and understanding it is a lot faster than usual. Technology has definitely played an important role in teaching math education as it allows students to reach higher learning and power when it comes to numbers and equations.

Believe it or not, with the use of calculator technology, people especially the young ones will start to enjoy the real sense of numbers, a higher level of mathematics unlike without it students would tend to find math education boring and stressful. Thanks to calculator technology, math education is not as boring as it was before.

The use of compass, protractor, dividers, and a dozen more instruments used in math education specifically geometry makes studying way better than solving problems manually. Math education is not as simple as teaching students how to add, subtract, divide and multiply, this subject needs tools and technologies that could stimulate the mind of the students and challenge them to learn even more.

Bottom Line

Technology is important and has made math education a success. So if you think that technology has nothing to do with mathematics and teaching, then think twice. We use technology in our everyday lives and that includes teaching mathematics to students. Even the use of a simple ruler can already be considered as a technological tool, simple yet very useful.
