ab: In 1995, the Victorian Board of Studies accepted a recommendation from the
VCE Working Group to allow students to use graphics calculators in VCE
mathematics examinations as from 1997 (Victorian Board of Studies,
1995). In 1997, Victoria became the first state in Australia to permit
the use of graphics calculators in final external examinations. The use
of graphics calculators has become quite widespread. With the support
of the Board of Studies, a survey of secondary schools was undertaken
to gauge the response of teachers to these tools. This paper provides
information on choice of mathematics topics for which the graphics
calculators were used and how teachers view graphics calculator use in
secondary mathematics courses.
