The use of computers in mathematical education in schools depends on some very important conditions. The use of the computer has to be required in the curriculum, sufficient hardware and good software has to be bought and the computer is to be admitted in oral and written exams, inclusive the final examinations. All these conditions have been fulfilled to a great extent for grammar schools, business academies, secondary technical and trade schools in Austria in the last ten years. Therefore it depends primarily on the mathematics teacher, in which way and how intensively the computer is used in mathematical education.
