    Abstract

    With the contemporary growth of modern technology a number of free and open source software tools have been emerged to support online or distance education for basic level Mathematics. Technological aids for example; digital learning material, videos, recorded lectures, open tools to solve mathematical problems, online discussion boards, and online classrooms enhance the ability of students to solve mathematical problems. This research paper enlists the freeware and open source software tools for teaching and learning in mathematics and describes the role of technology for improved delivery of mathematical concepts. It also shows that how freeware and open source software tools are useful for distance education to achieve learning outcomes in a better flexibility and dynamism than ever before.
