Students using a TI-92: Technical Work and Understanding of Mathematics: Jean-baptiste Lagrange, France.

``After a survey of the use of DERIVE in the French schools, we are now building classroom sessions on limits and derivatives. In those sessions, every student has a TI-92 calculator. Consequently, we focus on the specific techniques to do mathematics with Computer Algebra, and on the help that those techniques bring to understanding.''
