Mathematical Activities with DERIVE
E. Graham, J. S. Berry, A. J. P. Watkins (eds)
These mathematical activities using DERIVE, were selected to illustrate the variety of ways in which DERIVE can be used to enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics. The activities contain many ideas that could easily be applied in different areas of mathematics, and which will act as a stimulus for developing your own tasks.
They are pitched at a variety of levels, from secondary school, through college to university. Several activities contain ideas that can be used at different levels. For example, the fractals section contains work on transformations that could be used with some school students, while some of the later activities are only suitable for undergraduates.
Each chapter includes a Rationale, a Description of the Activities, Comments on the Use of the Activities, to supplement the activities themselves. This allows readers to identify the key aspects of each activity and the advantages associated with its use, as well as any problems that might be experienced.
Free utility files to support the activities are available from the authors.
