Abstract

This paper considers cognitive development in mathematics and its relationship with computer technology, with special emphasis on the use of visual imagery and symbols and the later shift to formal axiomatic theories. At each stage, empirical evidence is presented to show how these forms of thinking are enhanced, changed, or impeded by the use of technology.
