Abstract: The author will present examples demonstrating
how technology can be used to enhance a course in the history of mathematics.

- As in most applications of technology, it is concepts that drive the technology.
- The history of mathematics considers in the development of mathematics :
- individuals who create and present mathematics
- political, sociological and educational contexts where mathematics is sustained and grows
- concepts of mathematics as they are understood today and especially
- Technology provides a variety of general tools for education.
- access - using the WWW;
- organize - using image, presentation, and word processors;and
- comprehend - using computational and visual tools to deconstruct and reconstruct [historical] results and arguments.

These tools are useful in the study of history by making information easier to
