Theory Into Practice Volume 40, Number 2, ISSN 0040-5841
Discusses how to define and teach algebra given the available technology, highlighting computer algebra systems (CAS), which feature multiply-linked graphical, numerical, and symbolic manipulation utilities. The article describes: today's versus yesterday's algebra; mathematics curriculum and the CAS; and use of CAS in the classroom, which can transform classroom activity, change student behavior, change teachers' roles, and develop skills.
