Animating an Equation: A Guide to Using FLASH in Mathematics Education
Bakhoum, Ezzat G.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v39 n5 p637-655 Jul 2008
Macromedia's FLASH development system can be a great tool for mathematics education. This article presents detailed Flash tutorials that were developed and taught by the author to a group of mathematics professors in a summer course in 2005. The objective was to educate the teachers in the techniques of animating equations and mathematical concepts in Flash. The course was followed by a 2-year study to assess the acceptance of the technology by the teachers and to gauge its effectiveness in improving the quality of mathematics education. The results of that 2-year study are also reported here. (Contains 9 figures.)
