## Unified Software for Unified Mathematics TeachingVladimir NodelmanComputer Science Institute of Technology Israel
## Abstract One of the important educational efforts always been
emphasizing of the mathematics internal integrity. Its advantages are
well known. Unfortunately, the software used in mathematics teaching is
explicitly separated by application areas. As an example, here is a fragment
from the Topics of Interests of current conference: Geometry using Dynamic
Geometry software, Algebra using CAS, Graphics Calculators, and Statistics
using Dynamic Statistics software. Such multitude disturbs teaching because
of disintegration both studied subjects (Mathematics Contents) and software
interfaces (GUI). This paper provides a unified software support by means
of ''VisuMatica''- a tool developed for mathematics teaching in integrated
manner. Multiple examples of its application in teaching different subjects
of high school and academy mathematics courses demonstrate the power of
integrated approach. |
