### Abstract
An algebraic calculator is a hand-held graphing calculator which,
with a built-in computer algebra system, can manipulate algebraic
expressions, differentiate and integrate functions symbolically,
solve equations for real and complex roots etc. Given their
functionality and portability, algebraic calculators have been
widely used by mathematics educators in many countries in enhancing
teaching and learning of mathematics at various levels. This is a
hands-on workshop to explore the capabilities currently available
and to consider their significance for the mathematics curriculum
and teaching methods and assessment. Participants will use Texas
Instrument¡¯s Voyage 200. No previous experience with this or other
graphing calculators will be assumed. |
