dc.description.abstractThroughout the ages, the development of computational instruments runs parallel to the development of mathematics playing an important role in the dissemination of this subject matter and its applications. Nevertheless, from the abacus and the first calculating machine to the electronic computer and the graphing calculator, history shows that the mtroduction of new technologies tends to find an initial resistance in their use, although, in the end, all computational aids find their place in the process of transmission of knowledge and information. After a brief description of some of the most relevant devices in the history of computation, this paper presents the use and applications of two modem mathematical tools: The TI-92 Graphing Calculator and the software package Derive. The study concludes with an analysis of the future impact of new technologies in mathematics and applied fields, mainly in engineering, based on personal experiences and the endorsements and critiques of national and international associations.en_US
