Some Problems of Mathematical CAL

Beevers, C.E., Foster, M.G., McGuire, G.R. and Renshaw, J.H. (1992) Some Problems of Mathematical CAL Computers & Education, 18, (1-3), pp. 119-125. (doi:10.1016/0360-1315(92)90044-6).

Record type: Article


This paper describes briefly some problems of mathematical CAL and suggests ways to combat them. Within the context of the CALM Project for Computer Aided Learning in Mathematics we highlight three main areas of difficulty—mathematical display, input and evaluation. These problems are illustrated using examples from software developed at the Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh and at Southampton University; the examples are taken from both calculus and algebra.
