 Although spreadsheet programmes are originally designed for business applications, they are good teaching and learning tools in mathematics, especially in investigating number patterns, drawing statistical graphs and answering whatif type questions. Using spreadsheets in learning mathematics does not require advanced computer programming skills. Automatic display of numerical results, mathematical manipulation and graph drawing can be operated by simple commands.
