A Flash connection to CAS

Keehong Song, Austin, Texas

Flash has become the most important Web animation standard these days.
As such, the Flash plug-in is now prebuilt within both Internet Explorer
and Netscape.  With the aid of the Java server technology, this Web
animation standard can harness the CAS (Computer Algebra System) with
the internet capabilities.

The technique can bring about significant improvements in the area of
online learning in Mathematics as it enables both visualization and 
experimentation in one single session.

The talk discusses the technique with the animation examples in teaching
the Mathematics courses.
