Resumo: The main objective of our work is to develop a tool (Graphical Simulator of Mathematical Algorithms - GraSMA) that can be used by teachers and students in the classes of Numerical Methods. GraSMA will screen the execution of mathematical algorithms coded in Octave. For the end user, the software is therefore a sequence of parameterized algorithms whose steps can be visualized graphically. To achieve it we try two different strategies. We started by annotating manually the original algorithm with inspector functions. Now we are testing a new approach that aims at automatically annotating the original code with inspector functions. A language processor, built with Lex and Yacc tools, will be used to automatically annotate Octave code with inspection function. Until now, this task has been applied to a particular class of numerical algorithms that calculates zeros of nonlinear functions. The objective now is to extend this strategy to a larger class of numerical methods. This application permits to simulate mathematical methods. So, users can have a better understanding of mathematical methods. However, we think this application can’t be completely generic and if we want to display complex algorithm, it will be hard and slow. Indeed, we think that Java isn’t the best language to deal with mathematics, C could be better.
