SOUNDOFF--A Computer for All Students--Revisited
The introduction of the graphing calculator has changed the structure of teaching and learning mathematics. This made it possible for everybody to receive the benefits of a computer-generated visualization without the high cost of a computer. These graphing calculators over the years have lowered in cost, became easier to use, and are more portable.
The next generation of graphing computers has arrived with the recent introduction of the Texas Instrument

mathematics and technology. I understand the need to continue using the paper-and-pencil methods, but computing tools should be added to the current criteria.
The future will be technologically intense and very competitive. Graphing calculators has enhanced mathematics and I think the new powerful computing tools will do the same for the next generation. These hand-held computers are inexpensive and contain very powerful and versatile computer software. This could be the computer for all mathematics students.
