CAS LC – Computer Algebra System Learning Companion
The CAS LC is an ongoing research and development project to develop and deploy Web-based, online computerized, electronic and digital tools that support under-prepared college students to learn and become proficient in the use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS). The CAS software themselves are automation tools for computational mathematics. Students are anticipated to extensively use computational math techniques and tools in support of their academic and future professional work and careers in STEM-related disciplines. These learner-focused, learning automation, and computer-aided, computer-assisted learning tools and infrastructures, (regarded as learning exoskeleton, scaffolding and prosthetics), are termed Learning Companions (LC).
