State of the art computer algebra packages allow treatment of
mathematical concepts beyond those which are traditionally offered or
This is important for mathematics education since such
concepts are precisely those which were scarcely understood by students
both in secondary and tertiary education.
Implementation of these
mathematical concepts will greatly improve the possibilities for
mathematics education at these levels.
Examples of such concepts are:
• handling of inequalities;
• limits, continuity, Lipschitz conditions and smoothness;
• growth of functions and the speed with which limit values are
• quotients of structures;
• spatial geometry and visualisation of objects in up to four
Examples of this methodology ...
