Symbolic Mathematics Engines in Teaching Chemistry: A Symposium Report
Journal of Chemical Education, v81 n12 p1817 Dec 2004
The use of Symbolic Mathematics Engines (SMEs) in chemical education as a part of the Division of Computers in Chemistry was discussed by a panel of educators at the Symbolic Calculation in Chemistry symposium in Philadelphia in 2004. The panelists agreed that many more topics in chemistry are amenable to SME's exploration and that symbolic computational tools should be taught more widely in mathematics classes and software developers should strive to make their tools easier to use.
