Introducing Computer Algebra to School Teachers of Mathematics
Man, Yiu-Kwong
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, v26 n1 p23-26 2007
Since the last decade, the use of computer algebra systems at the Hong Kong school level is still very limited. Among various reasons behind, the lack of exposure of this kind of software to local school teachers should be taken into account. In this article, we describe how to introduce MAPLE in a BEd module of a local teacher-training programme. Reflection on the effectiveness of the module and barriers faced by the school teachers at present are discussed.
