ab: Summary: TeX has become one of the most popular tools for editing teaching
materials or textbooks in collegiate mathematics education, since it
enables usual mathematics teachers to easily produce high-quality
mathematical documents. Its capabilities for visualization and
computation are fairly limited, so that many teachers simultaneously
use various software such as Computer Algebra System (CAS) or Dynamic
Geometry Software (DGS) to generate and display high-quality
mathematical artworks. In this paper, we discuss the conditions under
which the graphics generated by CAS/DGS mostly enhance the educational
effect of teaching materials edited by TeX. As a result, the use of a
CAS macro package for generating high-quality graphics in TeX documents
is proposed.
