In Australia, there is a paucity of information regarding the introduction of computers into school education, especially school mathematics education, in particular for NSW. This thesis studies the history of computers in education in NSW, from its beginning in 1971, to when communications technology became influential in both society and government policy in 1992. This study uses a historical method, integrated with quantitative and qualitative variables, combined with a grounded theory approach.
