ab: In the Netherlands in October 1998, the short-term project Symbolic
Calculator took place. Twenty-two 16-year old students worked on
optimization problems, using the TI-92. They used the SC mainly for
solving equations and taking derivatives that they couldnâ€™t yet take
by hand. In my lecture, I will present some examples of the obstacles
students encountered, which were probably caused by a lack of knowledge
and skills. Also, I will present some general results and the main
conclusions concerning required advance knowledge and skills.
