Abstract

The purpose of this article is five-fold:

1.to elaborate on mathematical pedagogy, the application of mathematics, the misunderstanding and the myth around this powerful language;
2.to explain the differences between theoretical solutions and constructive solutions;
3.to explain the influence of technology and its pivotal—in many cases, indispensable—role in teaching, and research, and solving real-world problems;
4.to give examples that show the failure of technology to solve several well-posed problems that possess (constructive) solutions, and to give examples indicating that widely-used software sometimes provides the wrong answer; and
5.to discuss the misuse of technology in teaching mathematics, a trend that unfortunately will have adverse effects on learning mathematics.
