You may object to this statement on several grounds:

  1. Learning math is and will always be a private task. You have to spend a lot of time with a topic in math to really understand it, and nothing can change that.

  2. People have been doing math for thousands of years without technology. And technology when used badly just gives you an illusion that you’re getting stuff done.
