Submission time line: From July 15th to October 6th, 2012


In 1992, the ACDCA (Austrian Center for Didactics of Computer Algebra) began a conference series focusing on the use of symbolic calculation software in mathematics education. The first international conference dedicated to the use of Derive symbolic calculation software took place in 1994. After that time, ACDCA and Derive conferences were held in alternating years. In 2002, the two conferences were merged into the first TIME (Technology and its Integration into Mathematics Education) Conference. In 2012, Derive conferences are renamed as Conferences for CAS in Education & Research.


For this special issue of iJMEST (with up to 12 papers), we welcome extended versions of selected papers presented at TIME 2012. As for the Conference, the topics are any aspect related with Technology integration into Mathematics Education, including (but not restricted to):

  • 12th ACDCA Summer Academy Strand:
  • CAS-based curricula and teaching methods
  • Dynamic geometry systems as teaching tools
  • Assessing with technology
  • Internet as a teaching aid
  • Dispensable and indispensable mathematical skills and abilities
  • CAS as pedagogical tools for compensation and amplification
  • Demands on a Pedagogical CAS
  • New classroom examples using CAS
  • Future of CAS in Education
  • The next generation: PeCAS = Pedagogical CAS
  • CAS - Spreadsheet - Dynamic Geometry all in one?
  • Compulsory use of ICT in classrooms
  • 10th Conference for CAS in Education & Research
  • Applications in mathematics, the natural sciences, research & development, economy, social sciences, industry, ...
  • Programming in Computer Algebra Systems
  • Interfaces to other programs/tools
  • Producing and using utility files and libraries
  • Problems and limitations
  • Web resources - going online
  • Connecting computer algebra and computational logic
  • Recreational Mathematics supported by CAS and Dynamic Geometry
  • Comparison of different computer algebra systems
  • Modelling and Simulating Dynamic Processes
