Computer Tutorial "Higher Mathematics" for Engineering Specialties.
Slivina, Natalia A.; Krivosheev, Anatoly O.; Fomin, Sergey S.
This paper presents a CD-ROM computer tutorial titled "Higher Mathematics," that contains 17 educational mathematical programs and is intended for use in Russian university engineering education. The first section introduces the courseware climate in Russia and outlines problems with commercially available universal mathematical packages. The second section describes the structure and properties of the courseware, including the following components: (1) MATRIX, a subject-oriented program that provides computer support to the study of linear algebra and analytical geometry; (2) FORMULA, a subject-oriented medium for solving problems in calculus and approximate calculations; (3) ODE (Ordinary Differential Equations), a program that helps in understanding qualitative aspects of the theory of differential equations; (4) Numerical Integration; and (5) the courseware navigator. The potential to run the courseware package on the Internet as well as on a local network, and plans for future development are also discussed. Five figures illustrate the main dialog window of MATRIX, the graphic window of FORMULA, the graphic window of ODE, a screen in the package Numerical Integration, and a Navigator menu. (DLS)
