On the Integration of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) by Canadian Mathematicians: Results of a National Survey
Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education Vol. 14, No. 1 (2014) pp. 35–57
In this article, we outline the findings of a Canadian survey study (N = 302) that focused on the extent of computer algebra systems (CAS)-based technology use in postsecondary mathematics instruction. Results suggest that a considerable number of...
Systemic Shifts in Instructional Technology: Findings of a Comparative Case Study of Two University Mathematics Departments
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education Vol. 21, No. 4 (2014) pp. 117–142
This paper reports on the findings of an international case study in which researchers examined two mathematics departments (Canada/UK) in which the sustained use of technology was strategically established in a mathematics degree program. This case ...
Integrating Computer Algebra Systems in Post-Secondary Mathematics Education: Preliminary Results of a Literature Review
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education Vol. 17, No. 2 (2010) pp. 57–68
We present results of a literature review pilot study (326 papers) regarding the use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) in tertiary mathematics education. Several themes that have emerged from the review are discussed: diverse uses of CAS, benefits...
Do mathematicians integrate computer algebra systems in university teaching? Comparing a literature review to an international survey study
Computers & Education Vol. 58, No. 1 (January 2012) pp. 423–434
We present a comparative study of a literature review of 326 selected contributions ( Buteau, Marshall, Jarvis & Lavicza, 2010) to an international (US, UK, Hungary) survey of mathematicians ( Lavicza, 2008) regarding the use of Computer ...

Innovative CAS Technology Use in University Mathematics Teaching and Assessment: Findings from a Case Study in Alberta, Canada
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 37, No. 4 (October 2018) pp. 309–354
In this paper, we report on a case study that focused on innovative uses of CAS technology in university mathematics teaching and assessment. The study involved a site visit to the University of Alberta campus (June 2015) during which: interviews...
Middle School Pre-service Mathematics Teachers’ Perceptions of Mathematical Beauty in Online Module Discussions
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2004 (2004) pp. 4438–4445
We present a study of over 100 middle school pre-service teachers' online discussions of mathematical beauty. The goal of the study is to identify how the pre-service teachers perceive mathematical 'beauty'. The pre-service teachers were part of a...
