ab: The zero-address code output from a computer compiler proves to be useful
in producing computer enhanced learning material in mathematics
education. The authors adapted a program to produce this code for
mathematical expressions. This code is then interpreted in a number of
different ways which prove useful to the teacher. In particular,
programs are produced capable of evaluating and plotting non-continuous
mathematical functions, and, symbolically differentiating a function in
the variable x. (orig.)
