Summary: This paper describes a high school project where the mathematics teaching and learning software M\@th Desktop (MD) based on the Computer Algebra System Mathematica was used for symbolical and numerical calculations and for visualisation. The mathematics teaching and learning software M\@th Desktop 2.0 (MD) contains the modules Basics including tools for teachers and students and fitting routines, Differentiation, Integration and MDTools. The homepage of the project is \url{http://www.deltasoft.at}. MD’s engine is Mathematica. An evaluation copy of MD is downloadable. After a short introduction delineating the initial situation, the aims of the project, and the methodological frame, we describe the teaching process and final outcomes. First results indicate that computer-based teaching intensifies the students’ activities, their level of attention, and their contentment with mathematics.
