Mathematics is an important subject learned by students studying in schools and universities. Students may acquire mathematical knowledge in different ways. One of the most effective ways is through solving mathematical problems. But, solving mathematical problems is a challenging task for many students. Therefore, Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) tools such as Computer Algebra Systems (CASs) have been introduced in order to help students to solve their mathematical problems. However, the currently available CASs are unable to provide the solutions to most mathematical problems, which usually contain a problem description in text, together with mathematical formulas and/or diagrams.
