This paper reviews the research on CAS use in undergraduate service mathematics courses with a focus on differential equations courses and discusses a pilot study motivated by the new requirements on CAS use in secondary school courses in Victoria and Western Australia and opportunities for change presented in previous undergraduate service courses and their assessment. The research focuses on ways to use CAS in teaching a traditional DE course, and the response of students given this opportunity in an examination.
