Abstract

This paper describes our experiences on teaching a chosen topic in calculus with the aid of computer algebra in the Hong Kong Institute of Education. The affective and cognitive domains for two treatments, namely computer-assisted instructions using Maple and conventional classroom teaching, are compared. We conclude that teaching calculus using computer algebra has a positive impact on teaching and learning calculus. Copyright © 1997 Australian Curriculum Studies Association Inc.
