The MATCOS project

Abstract : The MATCOS project was born from an analysis of the results of the National Plan for Information Science- considered by many to be disappointing- and other similar experiments, which in Italy in the 80s-90s had planned for the introduction of computer science (the computer as a means of programming) as part of Maths teaching; it reiterates the soundness of the original proposal, especially as regards the use of programming in learning Maths and underlines the need to:
- accentuate the algorithmic aspect of Maths;
- make available an accessible programming language, in the mother tongue, which is Maths orientated and suitable for the effective logical capabilities of the students.
With reference to the second point, a programming language was constructed entitled MatCos, with the aforementioned characteristics; in fact, it is in the mother tongue (Italian), it retains the classic structure of a programming language, and besides it is Maths orientated, in the sense that it uses commands linked to precise mathematical concepts.
