Abstract

This position paper claims that the way a mathematical problem is solved depends on the technology available to the problem-solver then. Drawing on the authors’ mathematical
experience of finding a new solution to an old problem - the Generalised Fermat Point Problem, salient observations are drawn to illustrate how a problem solver’s experience
can shaped by technological affordances.
