With outstanding free resources such as GeoGebraWolframAlpha and Desmos which are also available as apps for tablets and phones as well as desktop versions we can easily illustrate concepts in our day to day lessons. Also note Graspable Math.

There are pages on this blog on GeoGebraWolframAlpha and Desmos.

For excellent advice on the use of Technology, see these MEI pages. Note MEI’s comprehensive guidance with ideas for integrating Technology which I think will be useful whichever examination board you are using.
