Computer Aided Assessment of Mathematics

Chris Sangwin


This book examines computer aided assessment (CAA) of mathematics in which computer algebra systems (CAS) are used to automatically establish the mathematical properties of expressions provided by students in response to questions. In order to automate such assessment, the relevant criteria must be encoded. This is not so simple. Even articulating precisely the desired criteria forces the teacher to think very carefully indeed. Hence, CAA acts as a vehicle to examine assessment and mathematics education in detail and from a fresh perspective. For example, the constraints of the paper-based for ... More
