The potential to use mathematics-based software as a tool to enhance student thinking and development is discussed and a taxonomy of tool categories is outlined. Briefly, there are five categories of tool-based mathematics software that can be used fruitfully in a mathematics curriculum: (a) Review and practice; (b) General; (c) Specific; (d) Environments; and (e) Communication tools. A description of the affordances and constraints of the five types of software and how each facilitates different aspects of student learning clarifies the ways in which diverse off the shelf offerings can be used to address the diverse goals of mathematics instruction from building basic skills to mathematical applications in the real world.
