Computer Algebra Systems and Theorems on Real Roots of Polynomials
Aidoo, Anthony Y.; Manthey, Joseph L.; Ward, Kim Y.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n5 p673-677 2010
A computer algebra system is used to derive a theorem on the existence of roots of a quadratic equation on any bounded real interval. This is extended to a cubic polynomial. We discuss how students could be led to derive and prove these theorems. (Contains 1 figure.)
