How Learning Mathematics Can Be Made More Enjoyable
D'Apice, Ciro; Manzo, Rosanna
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, v11 n4 p147-152 2004
New information technologies can act as a Trojan horse offering activities that will require major changes in the teaching-learning process. Computer aided learning applications are able to offer advanced students the opportunity to improve their skills and to maintain their motivation. In the spirit of "learning by doing", they are encouraged to discover principles by themselves. In this paper, a friendly package implemented in Mathematica was developed with the aim of laying to rest the idea that Mathematics and its teaching are tedious! It was designed in order to closely connect the expositive component, i.e. material that describes the theoretical background of the subject, and the active component for exercises. (Contains 10 figures.)
