    Abstract

    With the continuous advance in the technological tools, both Hardware and Software, a massive utilization has started in different fields of society. One of the fields in which this type of tool is used is the academic one, given the importance in the generation of spaces for discussion in teacher-student mediation, using the computer as a tool that supports the process in the classroom. In particular, the use of specialized software has made the teaching work change depending on the support in the resource, however, you cannot depend exclusively on the resource, but the teacher must be able to use the tool recognizing the benefits and limitations that the software You can submit. The objective of this work is to socialize a classroom experience developed with the students of Differential Calculus in the thematic axis of inverse functions using Wolfram Mathematica 10 software, in which it is possible to show a program limitation with respect to the Cartesian representation of certain functions inverse, which can lead to misinterpretations about their behavior.
