The introduction of CAS and graphics calculators into mathematics teaching has had a strong impact on the way in which derivative and integral are introduced and developed. This paper provides a review of pen-and-paper and technology approaches identified in the research literature. They range from object-based to local, and all incorporate student investigation. We discuss their advantages and disadvantages with reference to research findings.
