Journal of Symbolic Computation
Special Issue on
Technology and its Integration into Mathematics Education
José Luis Galán García
Pedro Rodríguez Cielos
Gabriel Aguilera Venegas
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, 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):
We expect original articles (typically 15-30 pages) that present high-quality contributions that have not been previously published in a journal and that must not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere (extended and/or improved versions of Conference papers).
Without these, the paper will not be considered.
Submissions must comply with JSC's author guidelines (stated here).
They must be written in English and should be prepared in LaTeX. We kindly request authors to send their contribution to be reviewed by an English-speaking native person before submiting it.
The paper should be written using an older version of the "Elsevier Article Class (elsart.cls)" with "JSC add-on style (yjsco.sty)" and "Harvard style references (elsart-harv.bst)" which can be obtained as the package "JSC LaTex" (that contains all the necessary style files and a template) from here.
In order to speed up the review process, remember to send your contribution to be reviewed by an English-speaking native person before submiting it. Submissions to this special issue will be done by sending a pdf version of the proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org (please, refer to "TIME JSC-SI Proposal" in the subject line).
The dead line for submissions has been extended to October 6th.
For further information, please send an e-mail to José Luis Galán García at email@example.com.
