Thank you for these very interesting informations:

It is not done for a "convenience" or "technical", but rather it is trying to create mathematical thinking. In all our training materials we give to AP teachers, educators and similar, we focus heavily on how they need to constantly be asking the students "what is the type of thing you are looking at?", "what type of problem are you solving?", "are you looking at numbers? graphs? or symbolic?". But why do we need a CAS for these things? "I am solving an equation" > paper & pencil "I am solving a number" > calculator (eventually after "solving an equation") JSBach
