Non-Interactive Graphics Techniques in Mathematics Education.
Joy, Kenneth; And Others
Computer technology, as an effective means for precisely simulating mathematical concepts and problems, could meet the need for new visual approaches to mathematics education. Computer generated imagery can not only accurately display two- and three-dimensional illustrations from mathematical models, but high precision images are economically developed and displayed in a batch environment using a compositional modeling system. Classroom visual aids (e.g., large prints, slides, transparencies) are obtainable from the computer image. The production methodology for a specific series of 43 illustrations used in introductory calculus courses includes the stages of concept clarification, variability analysis, and building the computer model. An appendix contains nine of these illustrations which model complex concepts or problems common to most calculus texts. (CMV)
