Before programs like mathematica can be effectively used in a classroom 
situation, the students must be at a level of comfort with using such 
systems comperable to the current level of comfort with using 
calculators.  Otherwise students get frustrated and lose interest.

Does this mean wait untill after the students have had computer classes 
to begin using mathematica in mathematics classrooms?  Or teach computer 
concepts (as related to mathematica) in mathematics classes?
