**A set of lesson ideas and activities where ICT is used to explore mathematical processes and applications.**

Mathematical processes and applications lie at the centre of the Secondary National Curriculum in mathematics and are embedded in all units of work. They influence the nature of mathematical activities to be undertaken and provide powerful guides to teachers making choices about pedagogical approaches and classroom organisation.

ICT in mathematics enables us to present mathematical problems and activities in dynamic, visually exciting ways that engage and motivate learners. It helps to introduce, explore and represent concepts, structures and processes in new and revealing ways.

Often, dynamic images will permit insights and understandings that are difficult to convey in other ways. The examples included here encourage the use of ICT to create and address problems.
