One of my last assignments at the university of Gothenburg was to teach a sequence of three seminars in programming for prospective teachers (n=37). The three seminars are given in the introduction of this manuscript. Since this was a course for prospective upper secondary teacher of mathematics, it was decided that it should be a course in programming for learning mathematics. This manuscript is a research article but also a manuscript about programming in GeoGebra, Python, and Wolfram Alpha. The examples I shared with my students led me to write a book about programming.
