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.
