The gradual incorporation of the use of Casio's Classwiz calculators in the Basic Mathematics course favors the construction of a new learning environment. Calculators are tools that allow students to construct concepts and meanings of the different mathematical objects that can be studied with calculators.

Calculators are also useful to promote student´s collaborative learning that is one of the aspects that we much value, incorporating the calculators let students use their mobile devices to visualize and to share results of calculations and graphs, through the generation of a QR code.

It is in this sense that technology is valued, to simplify algorithmic processes and focus attention on the exploration, manipulation, contrast and interpretation of calculation results.
