Integration of Programming in Mathematics

This article provides a short description of all implementation aspects of undergraduate programming-based mathematics courses at Brock University: classroom (lecture and laboratory sessions); curriculum, including a detailed example of a programming-based mathematical task; selection of programming languages; assessment; and a brief account of the course evolution from 2001 to 2015. It ends by addressing the question: how do we know that “it” works?
