Mathematics and IT

The idea to integrate mathematics into IT education  discussed in a previous post, can really it be seriously considered? Yes, this very natural because
  • a laptop is an ideal laboratory for arithmetics, geometry and calculus
  • in a couple of  all students from early age will use a laptop/mobile extensively
  • computer software is based on mathematics
  • a laptop gives feed-back
  • programming teaches logic 
  • programming can teach computing
  • programming can teach mathematical modeling
  • programming can teach problem solving 
What more would you like math education to contain? The more I think about this idea, the better it seems. In fact this is the basic idea of Body&Soul.
