    The effectiveness of technology-enhanced resources in mathematics in higher education is far from clear, nor is student engagement with such resources. In this review article, we investigate the existing literature in three interrelated areas: student engagement with technology in higher education and mathematics; what works and what does not in technology in education and in mathematics in higher education; evaluating the use of technology in higher education and mathematics; and the use of frameworks and models. Over 300 research articles were identified for this purpose and the results are reported in this review. We found a dearth of studies in undergraduate mathematics education that specifically focus on student engagement with technology. In addition, there is no overarching framework that describes both the pedagogical aspects and the educational context of technology integration in mathematics.
