Abstract

Appropriate use of hand-held technology, like the TI-89 or TI-92, can help students build deep understanding about important techniques used in mathematics. Interesting real world problems can be solved using these tools. This technology can help students build the evidence needed to make conjectures and give proofs. Examples will be given to support these claims.
