Whereas computational applied sciences are remodeling the pro perform of arithmetic, as but they've got had little impression on tuition arithmetic. This pioneering textual content develops a theorized research of why this can be and what will be performed to deal with it. It examines the actual case of symbolic calculators (equipped with computing device algebra structures) in secondary schooling. Drawing on a considerable software of French innovation and study, in addition to heavily comparable reports from Australia and the Netherlands, it offers wealthy illustrations of the various facets of expertise integration, and of the ways that those are formed at varied degrees of the academic institution.

The corresponding ministerial circular stipulates‚ in 1995: Mastery of calculator use represents a significant objective in the training of students because it constitutes an efficient tool within the context of their studies and their professional‚ economic and social life.

Prescriptions concerning calculation tools are displayed alongside questions relating to numerical computations and graphic representations (Box 1-1).
