The curriculum in a CAS environment. (English)
Berry, John et al., The state of computer algebra in mathematics education. Chartwell-Bratt, Bromley (ISBN 0-86238-430-3). 21-31 (1997).
The first article discusses the goals of the mathematics curriculum in the age of the CAS. This section includes basic definitions and begins the discussion of what mathematical activities are necessary to achieve these goals. The discussion is included with a classification of these activities into three categories: those that are unchanged by the availability of CAS; those activities where the CAS will have a great impact; and activities that were not stressed prior to the CAS, but are now possible and desirable. The chapter is rather optimistic in its tone and premise.
