Abstract

Finally, there is need to indicate the relationship between mathematics/mathematical literacy and ICTs. In this chapter, the two are seen as inseparable. In everyday life, a person is continually faced with challenges that call for mathematical skills, such as financial issues (hire-purchase, mortgage bonds, and investments), understand house plans, read a map, follow time table, et cetera; with the usage of ICT these can be done very fast and accurately. It is of utmost importance that a person must have a sense and knowledge of Mathematics, so as to detect mistakes committed by the usage of ICT.
