Effects of the TI-92 on Calculus Students Solving Symbolic Problems.
Keller, Brian A.; Russell, Chris A.
International Journal of Computer Algebra in Mathematics Education, v4 n1 p77-97 1997
Provides evidence of differences in students' ability to solve problems with and without a computer algebra system. Indicates that almost without exception, the TI-92 students were more successful at symbolically solving problems than comparison students. Observes improved performance on all three levels of problems: (1) directive computational; (2) intermediate computational; and (3) complex symbolic problems. (Contains 32 references.) (Author/ASK)
