- Better motivate people and enrich the thought process by more realistic and interesting examples.
- Do visualizations and study situations that are much harder to do by hand.
- Use computers for routine algebra and calculations so we can
spend more time on the
*ideas.* - In trying to reach and stimulate students we usually do more than theorem and proof. Applications using technology are another way to do this.
- Activities that involve student will have much greater impact than demonstrations.
- Bring things to life!
