Using Maxima in the Mathematics Classroom
Fedriani, Eugenio M.; Moyano, Rafael
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, v18 n4 p171-176 2011
Coming from the Macsyma system and adapted to the Common Lisp standard, Maxima can be regarded as a tool for a frequent use in the mathematics classroom. The main aim of this work is to show some possibilities of Maxima and its graphical interface through our experience as Mathematics teachers in Business degrees, although it can be easily spread to a secondary school. We hold that Business degrees and A-levels can be provided with a resource that will make easier the learning of this subject to students. We also present a report of the main strengths and weaknesses of this software when used in the classroom.
