TITLE:††††††† †† The Development and Implementation of a Web-Based Method of Instruction for Applied Calculus
For the last five to ten years there has been wide exploration of innovative approaches to classroom instruction: the use of the computer in teaching science courses.† The results of those explorations have proven that the use of the computer in teaching Applied Calculus courses enhances the studentsí understanding.†
In May 2003, I have started developing web-based instruction of Applied Calculus to improve studentsí understanding of the course by using mathematical and scientific abilities of the latest technology.† Maple software has been used to make the instruction platform more interactive and dynamic.
This talk is about the results of the development and implementation of the computerized Maple interactive Calculus teaching platform.
