Motivating Constraints of a Pedagogy-Embedded Computer Algebra System
Dana-Picard, Thierry
International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, v5 n2 p217-235 Jun 2007
The constraints of a computer algebra system (CAS) generally induce limitations on its usage. Via the pedagogical features implemented in such a system, "motivating constraints" can appear, encouraging advanced theoretical learning, providing a broader mathematical knowledge and more profound mathematical understanding. We discuss this issue, together with two examples from Calculus, which show an important feature of an instrumentation process.
