Mathematica: An Aid in Teaching


Wen-Ying LIN & James KUNG(林文鶯、宮在明)


Since its first release in 1988, Mathematica has become an important computing tool for tens of thousands of teachers and students — from secondary school to graduate school — in the United States. Its applications encompass all areas of mathematics, science, education, and business where quantitative methods are used. This article gives an introduction to Mathematica, shows its usefulness as an aid in teaching, and describes some of its features and limitations under the Windows environment.
