 Mathematica World - Education Today
Steve Hunt
Special issue:
The Mathematica environment resists being identified with any particular educational method.  The diverse range of implementations in this issue illustrate that there is no one educational paradigm that can be associated with the use of Mathematica in teaching.  What is clear is that many educators are finding in Mathematica a tool for enhancing and at times replacing earlier methods.

      Animating Calculus - Ed Packel & Stan Wagon.
