Abstract

A review and reflection on the curriculum change project carried out at UCL in the academic year 2014- 15 to introduce Matlab teaching in the first year engineering mathematics is carried out. The project was guided by findings from the literature on computer algebra systems, and conducted using classical project management techniques. A key finding from this project is that the project success was entirely dependent on evidence-based guidance from the literature and on systematic adoption of proper project management techniques.
