An instructional module has been
created to help students learn

different
topics in mathematics. This module is based on each

person’s
name to arouse interest in learning mathematics. It

involves
mathematical concepts such as number sense, algebraic

thinking,
geometry, and statistical reasoning, as well as other

subjects
such as art and logo design. It helps to solve typical

problems
of high-school and college science, mathematics, statistics

and other
courses. With its abundant contents we can provide our

students
the basic mathematical knowledge needed for further study

in their
own fields. In this workshop, using this module with the

help of
calculator, solving complex algebraic expressions can be

quickly
done with CAS. We will show how our students find their own

individualized
algebraic DNA and to appreciate that making

mathematics
is simple, attractive, realistic and personalized. The

participants
will be expected to play with their calculators and

find their
own individualized algebraic expressions.
