Procedural computer languages have long been used in many aspects of mathematics pedagogy. In this work, we examine the use of Prolog, a declarative language for the same purpose. We find the facts+rules aspect of Prolog to be a novel platform for developing coding lessons to supplement the learning of mathematics. Specific examples are presented.

Computer-Guided Solutions to Physics Problems Using Prolog

By posing a continual stream of pertinent questions, a nonmathematical computer program can prod freshman physics students toward an analytical solution to one-dimensional kinematics problems.

We note that both SWI and Gnu-Prolog support constraint logic programming
