Influence of Computers and Informatics on Mathematics and Its Teaching : Proceedings from a Symposium Held in Strasbourg, France in March 1985 and Sponsored by the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction
First published in 1986, the first ICMI study is concerned with the influence of computers and computer science on mathematics and its teaching in the last years of school and at tertiary level. In particular, it explores the way the computer has influenced mathematics itself and the way in which mathematicians work, likely influences on the curriculum of high-school and undergraduate students, and the way in which the computer can be used to improve mathematics teaching and learning. The book comprises a report of the meeting held in Strasbourg in March 1985, plus several papers contributed to that meeting.
