Exploration of Parametric Integrals Related to a Question of Soil Mechanics
Dana-Picard, Thierry; Zeitoun, David
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v48 n4 p617-630 2017
We study a 1-parameter family of trigonometric definite integrals, showing how the joint usage of Information and Communication Technologies and paper-and-pencil work lead to different outputs, revealing different mathematical meanings and different concrete meanings. This family of integrals is useful for describing a phenomenon in soil mechanics, whence the importance of such integrals in STEM education.
