Over the past 20 years, the use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) has helped with the teaching of mathematics in engineering schools. However the traditional use of CAS only in math labs has led to a narrow view by the student: the CAS is an additional work, not included in the learning process. The didactic guidelines of the European Higher Education Area(More)
The use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) in Mathematical Laboratories at Engineering Schools is increasing. Therefore, it has become necessary to undertake a new educational approach in the teaching of many mathematical topics. Obviously it is not possible to give the same lectures as in the 1950,s. The CAS allows us to experiment and teach in " a(More)
The teaching of mathematics in engineering schools has changed in the last 10 years irreversibly due mainly to two momentous events: the unstoppable emergence of the use of new technologies (ICT) in teaching and the establishment of European Space of Higher Education as a common teaching framework. This methodological change was made defeating, in many(More)
