The use of computer packages has brought us to a point where the computer can be used to discover new mathematical patterns and relationships, create impressive graphics to expose mathematical structure, falsify conjectures, confirm analytically derived results, and perhaps most impressively for the purist, construct formal proofs. This talk will give some examples from my research concerning geometry, integrals, binomial sums, dynamics and infinite series.
