International Journal of Computer Algebra in Mathematics Education, v8 n2 p99-114 2001
Investigates the impact of the TI-89 hand-held Computer Algebra System (CAS) on student achievement in a first year college core calculus course. Analyzes data from an experimental study conducted at the United States Military Academy at West Point from 1998-2000. Results indicate that the TI-89 hand-held CAS experimental group attained a higher mean score than the control group on 13 of 20 items. (Author/MM)
