Pierce, Robyn; Stacey, Kaye – International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning, 2010
This paper proposes a taxonomy of the pedagogical opportunities that are offered by mathematics analysis software such as computer algebra systems, graphics calculators, dynamic geometry or statistical packages. Mathematics analysis software is software for purposes such as calculating, drawing graphs and making accurate diagrams. However, its…

Pierce, Robyn; Ball, Lynda; Stacey, Kaye – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
The use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) in years 9 and 10 classrooms as a tool to support learning or in preparation for senior secondary mathematics is controversial. This paper presents an analysis of the positive and negative aspects of using CAS identified in the literature related to these year levels, along with the perceptions of 12…

Pierce, Robyn; Stacey, Kaye – Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, 2008
Pedagogical maps provide a graphic depiction of the way in which teachers exploit the presence of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) in their classrooms. They can show differences, and can also show growth, as well as personal preferences and reactions to particular teaching assignments. They might also be used for teachers to reflect on their own…

Pierce, Robyn; Stacey, Kaye – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2009
Taking advantage of pedagogical opportunities afforded by new technology requires appropriately designed lessons. This article reports on the use of "lesson study" to research principles for the design of a lesson aiming to take advantage of multiple representations. The lesson, for year 10 students who had personal access to TI-Nspire, focused on…
