Abstract:  Mathematics powers our modern world.  From optimizing crop yields, to designing sustainable products, to launching space crafts, mathematics improves our lives and makes us safer, more efficient and more innovative.  As a result, effective math education is more important than ever, and, when the right tools are employed, technology can play a critical role in making math easier to learn, understand, and use.  As a society, and especially as educators and business leaders, we have a responsibility to help students, researchers, engineers, and scientists take advantage of the power of math, so they in turn can enrich the world we live in.
