Michelle is very correct to point out that the vendor exhibits are good
places to find state of the art mathematics and tools. I hesitate to
completely agree that the sessions are out of date or less up-to-date
than the vendor exhibits.

Many of the presenters are very skilled in making proposals. For
instance, Bert Waits made a presentation on "Computer Algebra in Your
Pocket: The Next Revolution in Mathematics Learning." By being somewhat
generic in his title, he was able to spend most of his presentation on
the yet to be released TI-92. Wow, whiz, bang! With interactive Cabri
Geometry on board, a near computer like screen and the ability to step
through very complex math (we saw some rather burdensome second
derivatives become easy) Dr. Waits (Ohio State Univ) showed us some paths
to more gain with the same pain (effort).
