Education has become one of the fastest growing application areas for computers in general and computer algebra in particular. Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) make for powerful teaching and learning tools within mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, etc. Among them are: (a) the commercial "heavy weights" such as Casio ClassPad 330, Derive, Magma, Maple, Mathematica, MuPAD, TI NSpire CAS, and TI Voyage 200, and (b) the free software/open source systems such as Axiom, Euler, Fermat, wxMaxima, Reduce, and the rising stars such as GeoGebra, Sage, SymPy and Xcas (the swiss knife for mathematics).
The goal of this session is to exchange ideas, discuss classroom experiences, and to explore significant issues relating to CAS tools/use within education. Subjects of interest for this session will include new CAS-based teaching/learning strategies, curriculum changes, new support materials, and assessment practices from all scientific fields.
To aid in the creation of a proceedings for the meeting, please use this LaTeX template for your abstract. (The document generated by this template is located here.) Send a copy of the .tex file and a PDF version of the abstract to the session organizers. If you are not familiar with LaTeX, you may also send a plain text version of your proposal. Proceedings will be published with an ISBN. If your proposal is accepted, you may send an extended abstract or short paper of up to 5 pages to be included in the proceedings. We look forward to your submissions!
