Abstract: The paper traces the development of the integration of Information Technology (IT) into the mathematics curriculum in Singapore over the last ten years. It highlights the impact of the various Ministry of Education IT initiatives including the two Masterplan for IT in education on the teaching and learning of mathematics in Singapore schools. There is discussion of the emerging shift from the use of tutorial and drill-and-practice courseware in schools to reinforce the learning of mathematics to the use of open tools by teachers to create their own interactive mathematics resources to support the mathematics curriculum. Some challenges faced in the integration of IT into the mathematics curriculum are also highlighted.
