Abstract: 
The study investigated the effects of using an interactive computer algebra system called LiveMath on the cognitive development and attitudes of First Year Junior College students. The teacher used the software to engage the students in the experimental class by guiding them to explore mathematical concepts involving topics such as reciprocal curves, Maclaurin’s expansion and applications of integrations. There were two control classes. The first control class used the same guided discovery approach as the experimental class but without the help of technology. The second control class underwent traditional teacher-directed teaching. This paper will discuss the pros and cons of using LiveMath to engage the students and it will present the findings of the study and their implications for teaching and learning.
