2012 T3 International Conference - CAS: A Perspective From North of the Border


Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) have been a part of the Ontario curriculum since 2005. CAS use has evolved over that time and plays primarily three roles: as a tool for patterning; for investigating concepts in the general sense; and as a problem-solving tool. This session will look at how CAS has been integrated into the curriculum in Ontario and what it looks like in the classroom. Activities will be shared that highlight its various uses in a variety of topics. This session is recommended for the intermediate user of the TI-Nspireā„¢ CX CAS handheld.
