Abstract

This paper presents an efficient method to generate teacher’s guidance and presentation materials for mathematical education, especially for solving simultaneous equations. Using XSL translations on presentation templates named the guidance plans and incorporating the output of a mathematical symbolic processor such as Maple, the presentation materials can be dynamically generated.
