This work is the result of a study about the possibility of improvement in the Calculation’s academics’ performance. It was developed within a first year group of Mathematics Degree students, specifically in the Pre- Calculation subject. This is a quantitative research, which, for data collection, used a socio - economic profile questionnaire, an Elementary Mathematics survey test and the observation of the development of activities in which computational resources were used, being that all these activities were recorded in a daily basis. It was made a bibliographic research about the using of Information and Communication Technology. Relying on technologic development and in the facility to access all the needed resources, we used Maxima software associated with planned Mathematics activities, which assume the investigation by the student, aiming to improve his own performance. Besides, we also aim to analyze how this kind of activity may contribute for a more effective learning process. The final results show methodological possibilities, looking to an intuitive approach of the concepts in an academic environment, which enable the possibilities of several properties visualization, mainly the graphic ones. Besides, the intervention contributed for a change in the students’ attitudes, who turned out to be more active and independent in the learning process.
