Prior to the availability of personal technology in the form of graphics calculators, the algebra curriculum was rarely influenced by either computers or calculators.

Some of the links concern conceptual development of the ideas of variables and functions, the solution of equations and inequalities and the place of symbolic manipulation generally.
