Computer Algebra Based Learning and Evaluation

Computer algebra systems (CAS) are well-established research tools for performing symbolic manipulation of mathematical expressions, such as algebra and calculus. CABLE is designed to be a cost-effective, online infrastructure for writing, testing and databasing lightweight and flexible mathematical learning objects.

This infrastructure allows both staff and students to interact with computer algebra for the following functions:

Design has preferred formative learning rather than assessment.
