# Software

Data from National Educational Longitudinal has shown a positive correlation between computer use and student achievement in mathematics (Weaver, 2000). Interactive computer applications such as Geometerâ€™s Sketchpad can broaden and enhance studentsâ€™ understanding of mathematics by offering visualization tools that provide dynamic representations of concepts that allow the students to interact and manipulate objects (Ozel, Yetkiner, & Capraro, 2008). Remedial mathematics applications such as MasterMaths, combined with traditional teacher instruction, can lead to improved understanding of mathematics. A significant correlation has been shown between the amount of time that learners spent on the software and improvements in mathematics performance (Louw, Muller, & Tredoux, 2008).
