Programming in MuPAD - Declarations

  • Miroslaw Majewski

Abstract

Many mathematics teachers consider programming as a skill that is completely irrelevant to mathematics. However, when looking at our teaching, we may notice that teaching mathematics requires many activities that are not available in visual CAS. For instance, while teaching mathematics, we have to explore algorithms, use recursive functions, or create complex constructions in 2D or 3D geometry. All these activities consist of many steps and their nature resembles writing a kind of a program. These kind of activities can be practiced if we use a computer program where a programming language is available. This is the place where you will appreciate MuPAD.
