The introduction of mathematical software packages as effective and efficient means for engineering problem solving, allows the retirement of many calculational methods and the application of efficient computer-based techniques that are enabled by effective software. This paper discusses the following issues: analytical versus numerical solution techniques, graphical versus numerical solution techniques, teaching numerical methods and programming, validation and comparison of regression models, and determination of the number of significant digits in the reported results of numerical solutions.
