A Computer Algebra Primer and Homework Exercises for use in an Intermediate Macroeconomics Course – A Student/Teacher Collaboration
We discuss using computer algebras systems (CAS) in an undergraduate intermediate macroeconomics class. The criteria used in choosing a CAS are considered. One criterion was that students would bear little or no financial. The lessons learned in implementing a CAS – things that worked well and those that did not work so well – are noted. We also discuss the need for communications with information technology staff for successful implementation. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media, Inc. 2005
