Abstract

DERIVE is a symbolic algebra and graphing package that will run on virtually any PC, has a large literature for school and university users, and is available to students almost for the price of a textbook (Murphy (1996)). Bernhard Kutz ler is the author of an introduction to DERIVE which is a model of how to write a self-study guide to mathematical software (Murphy (1995)). In this new book, Kutzler, an expert on DERIVE teaching in the Austrian school curriculum, presents a linked series of 7 chapters on the design and implementation of mathematics courses using DERIVE. As was to be expected, the exposition is a model of clarity, and the book will be of interest to all teachers and lecturers who use or are thinking of using DERIVE with their students.
