DERIVE is a mathematical computer program, also called a computer algebra system (CAS). It processes algebraic variables, expressions, equations, functions, vectors, and matrices like a scientific calculator processes floating point numbers. DERIVE can perform numeric and symbolic computations, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, and plot graphs in 2 and 3 dimensions. It is an excellent tool for doing and applying mathematics, for documenting mathematical work, and for teaching and learning mathematics. In this workshop you will learn how to use DERIVE 5. Through solving typical high school math problems, you will learn to use DERIVE 5 routinely and apply it as a tool for teaching and learning mathematics.
