Welcome to the

Computer Algebra in Education

session of ACA 2009 that was held June 25-28, 2009
at École de technologie supérieure (ETS),
Université du Québec, Montréal, Québec, Canada.

Education has become one of the fastest growing application areas for computers in general and computer algebra in particular. Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) such as Axiom, Casio ClassPad 330, Derive, Maple, Mathematica, Maxima, MuPAD, Reduce, TI N-Spire CAS, and TI Voyage 200 make for powerful teaching and learning tools within mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, etc.

The goal of this session is to exchange ideas, discuss classroom experiences, and to explore significant issues relating to CAS tools/use within education. Subjects of interest for this session include new CAS-based teaching/learning strategies, curriculum changes, new support materials, and assessment practices from all scientific fields.

Papers from the Education session will be published in a special issue of The International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education (IJTME). See Publication link for more information on timeline.
