Computers and undergraduate mathematics: I: setting the scene


Computers & Education Volume 35, Number 2 ISSN 0360-1315 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


This is the first of three papers in which we examine current use of the computer in the undergraduate mathematics curriculum. Our aim here is to discuss various aspects of educational theory that have a bearing on how computers may be used. Later papers will survey practical examples in two contexts: desktop applications, and the use of the Internet. As part of the analysis we propose a taxonomy to classify computer usage: this is begun here, but extended and refined in the subsequent papers.
