Surely in this case, the CAS version is the 'better' method and the Calculator Suite is "wrong", given that the function does not have an asymptote. Wouldn't you want the Calculator Suite to simplify, rather than the other way around?]]>

As defined, f(x) is a classic example of a function with a removable discontinuity, and is the sort of expression you end up with when using the definition of a derivative. I'd hoped to illustrate that to my students in an assignment, but the usefulness of it disappears when the CAS auto-simplifies. In terms of taking limits and doing algebra, auto-simplification glosses over steps students would need to take when doing it by hand, so I'd rather have it stay as defined and manually simplify if necessary.]]>
