T. Ticó
Passeig Matemàtic per Catalunya. Pagès Ed., Lleida, 2004.
Abstract: I acted as supervisor of this nice work of Teresa Ticó, who is a high school maths teacher. In this work she proposes mathematical activities for high school students related to architecture, urbanism, historical and artistic objects, that can be visited during the usual school excursions and visits all around Catalunya (in Catalan).

J. Trias and V. Sacristán
A Geometry Lab with Mathematica. In Mathematica in Education and Research, Vol.4, N.2, pp.23-30, 1995. Renewed Abstract in Les tecnologies de la informació i la comunicació a l’educació a la UPC, pp. 55-55, 1999. Renewed version, with new co-authors, in Experiències de millora de la qualitat docent a la UPC, pp. 25-40, 1997.
Abstract: An experience of a Geometry Lab based on Mathematica for a Geometry course for Computer Science students, intended to be a basis for later courses in Computer Graphics, CAD and CAGD. Students combine their knowledge of basic geometry topics like polyhedra, curve and surface generation, affine and perspective transformations, among others, by means of lists manipulations and a clever use of substitution rules to generate apparently complicated geometric scenes.
