The Mathematical Sciences department at Pacific University, with
funding from NSF Grant #DUE-9650020, has developed a Mathematical Sciences
Computer Lab and Resource Center (MCLRC). The center houses information
on carreers, graduate programs in mathematics and allied fields and recent
progress in mathematics as well as computing facilities useable by students
for classwork, lab work, internet exploration, and independent research
projects. Portions of the mathematical sciences curriculum, including
calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, statistics, software
tools and scientific computing, are being altered to take advantage of this
new resource. With the principal tool being MAPLE, instructors are
constructing instructional supplements in the form of MAPLE worksheets for
students to complete and present, either in written, electronic, or oral
form to the instructor and/or class.
