Teaching Mathematics Using Steplets
Bringslid, Odd; Norstein, Anne
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v39 n7 p925-936 Oct 2008
This article evaluates online mathematical content used for teaching mathematics in engineering classes and in distance education for teacher training students. In the EU projects Xmath and dMath online computer algebra modules (Steplets) for undergraduate students assembled in the Xmath eBook have been designed. Two questionnaires, a compulsory student project and teaching in front of class show that using Steplets turn mathematics teaching from drill to understanding. The Steplets use algorithms developed for the Mathematica programming language. (Contains 11 figures and 4 tables.)
