What they say:   I used Casyopée to help students solve optimisation problems. It allowed me to present students very open tasks. Students explored and found results that they had to prove afterward. Casyopée also helped students reuse basic strategies for solving.   A teacher
What they say:   Casyopée is faster and more convenient than a calculator.... We have the geometric and algebraic side of the problem at the same time. It is easier to see how a function "reacts." It's useful and interesting.   A student
What they say:   Casyopée makes it easy to calculate a derivative, to factor, to calculate zeros... and have a graph of the function next to it in the same window. It allows on a geometric problem to be able to establish variables that can then be used to study the problem by way of functions...   A student
What they say:   Casyopee is a powerful application that can prove useful to both students and teachers It allows you to use various exploration and modeling tools, with the purpose of studying or teaching mathematical functions.   Softpedia
What they say:   Casyopee comes with lots of features. One of these features is the help provided for proving a function. There is also a feature for writing HTML reports that include the mathematical functions. Casyopee is guaranteed to improve the mathematical knowledge of its users.
What they say:   Besides the concept of number, the concept of function is the most important one in mathematics      David Hilbert
What they say:   The notion of function is present in all scientific disciplines, and also in everyday life. Our experience as a teacher shows every day that it is a problem for many students. Situations with Casyopée can also be used outside of a technological environment and everyone will be able to reflect on her professional practice.   A university teacher

Casyopée was born from research and development projects for 15 years within the IREM (Institut de Recherche sur l'enseignement des Mathématiques) of Rennes in Brittany.

Among the main contributors along the years:

  • Roselyne Halbert teaches at the lycée Zola of Rennes.
  • Jean-baptiste Lagrange was professor at the University of Reims, and is now a volunteer at the Laboratoire de Didactique André Revuz, University Paris Diderot.
  • Christine Le Bihan teaches at the lycée Joliot-Curie of Rennes.
  • Bernard Le Feuvre was a teacher at the lycée Cassin of Montfort (Ille et Vilaine). Deceased in July 2019, Bernard was to the end, and in spite of his illness, one of the main facilitators and contributors of the project. 
  • Xavier Meyrier was a teacher at the lycée Maupertuis of Saint Malo (Ille et Vilaine) et is now Inspecteur Pédagogique in Mathématiques.
  • Marie-Catherine Manens was a teacher at the lycée Zola of Rennes and contribues now as a volunteer.

Many teachers, researchers and developers took and take part in the software design, in developing uses and resources. It is a lively community, open to everybody interested. Every contribution is welcome from simple remark on ergonomics or software functioning , to proposition of new facilities, through report and reflection about  uses.

And the answer to your question : Casyopée =  Calcul symbolique offrant des possibilités à l'élève et l'enseignant
