There is widespread acceptance that mathematics is important, even vital, for an individual and for society. Those who disagree tend to argue that the subject is boring and irrelevant. It is therefore crucial that mathematics teaching strives to engage all learners at all levels, but without sacrificing the rigour of the subject. In this talk, I will argue that one way to achieve both rigour and broader access to mathematics lies with using appropriately designed digital technology. I will illustrate my argument with examples from research and practice. Finally I will point to ways the IMA might further contribute to this agenda.
