The Didactical Challenge of Symbolic Calculators: Turning a by Dominique Guin, Kenneth Ruthven, Luc Trouche

By Dominique Guin, Kenneth Ruthven, Luc Trouche

While computational applied sciences are remodeling the pro perform of arithmetic, as but they've got had little influence on institution arithmetic. This pioneering textual content develops a theorized research of why this can be and what may be performed to handle it. It examines the actual case of symbolic calculators (equipped with computing device algebra structures) in secondary schooling. Drawing on a considerable application of French innovation and learn, in addition to heavily comparable experiences from Australia and the Netherlands, it presents wealthy illustrations of the various facets of know-how integration, and of the ways that those are formed at assorted degrees of the academic establishment.

This textual content deals the 1st English-language exposition of the way an cutting edge synthesis of the theories of instrumentation and didactics can be utilized to light up the complexities of know-how integration. It bargains very important assistance for coverage and perform via its research of the significant position of the instructor and its id of key ideas for powerful didactical layout and administration. those exact positive aspects make this publication crucial analyzing for researchers, instructor educators, and graduate scholars in arithmetic schooling and know-how in schooling, in addition to for academics of arithmetic at upper-secondary and college levels.

This is a revised, English-language version of D. Guin & L. Trouche (Eds.) (2002) Calculatrices symboliques. Transformer un outil en un device de travail mathématique: un problème didactique (Editions los angeles Pensée Sauvage, Grenoble).
