Hong, Ye Yoon; Thomas, Mike; Kiernan, Christine
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v12 n3 p321-36 Dec 2000
Investigates whether the use of computer algebra systems could provide a significant advantage to students taking standard university entrance calculus examinations. Indicates that supercalculators would probably provide a significant advantage, particularly for lower-achieving students. Demonstrates that it is possible to write questions in which students do not gain an advantage from using calculators. (Contains 24 references.) (Author/ASK)
