Grant Number: DUE: 9551919
The project "Laboratories for a Mathematics Minor"
at Mount Holyoke College
has set up two computer laboratories for students
pursuing an exploration-based mathematics minor.
The laboratories are used primarily for two first
year mathematics courses, "Geometry" and "Number Theory,"
and a sophomore level course, "Laboratory in
Mathematical Experimentation." The three courses
form the heart of an alternative mathematics minor
which stresses exploration, conjecture and
argument/proof, and which does not require passage
through the traditional three-semester calculus sequence.
The exhibit will include excerpts from materials for
the three courses plus the computer software we use.
