Graphics calculators and VCE mathematics examinations. (English)
Scott, Nick et al., Mathematics: creating the future. , (ISBN 1-875900-20-9). 317-324 (1997).
Graphics calculators make their debut in external mathematics examinations in Victoria in 1997. The 1996 examinations and planned information circulars from the VCE mathematics subject panels point the way to how the technology will be handled. Issues arises on interpretation of the original guidelines and the need to have examination access to calculators not distort the spirit of the subject curricula. We look to the past for a guide noting this recurrent problem has been surmounted before with scientific calculators and almost certainly will arise in the (near) future with algebraic calculators.
