This article covers how a computer algebra system (CAS) wxMaxima can be explored for teaching single-variable and multivariable calculus to Korean digital natives. We present several examples where wxMaxima can handle calculus problems easily, not straightforwardly but still successfully with some human intervention, and unsuccessfully. By soliciting qualitative feedback on students' experience in exploiting the CAS, we gathered a mixed reaction. Although some students commented positively, the
