Description

I have been teaching mathematics using Mathematica in high school for more than 4 years, and found out that it is possible for high school students to do very interesting research of mathematics if they can use good software and get proper advice. I am going to introduce the results of our research. Some of them are mathematically new, and others are not new but very inspiring since they show promising possibilities to students. In our research the use of Mathematica is essential. In this papar "we" sometimes means a group of students, and in other times it means students plus the instructor R. Miyadera.
