This project is a National Science Foundation sponsored project designed
to help secondary school and college teachers of mathematics bring contemporary
topics in mathematics (chaos, fractals, dynamics) into the classroom, and
to show them how to use technology effectively in this process. At this point,
there are several interactive papers available. These are designed to help
teachers understand the mathematics behind such topics as iterated function
systems (the chaos game) and the Mandelbrot and Julia sets.
Geometric constraint solving has applications in many different fields,
such as molecular modeling, Computer-Aided Design, tolerance analysis, and
geometric theorem proving. In this primer, a solution to the problem of finding
a configuration for a set of geometric objects which satisfies a given set
of constraints between the geometric elements is detailed. We have provided
four different "tours" through the material in order to allow different types
of users easy access to the information appropriate to their needs.
Notes and handouts for an innovative geometry course developed at Princeton
and the Geometry Center by John Conway, Peter Doyle, Jane Gilman and Bill
Thurston.
This is the home page for a series of short interactive tutorials by Chris
K. Caldwell introducing the basic concepts of graph theory. They are designed
with the needs of future high school teachers in mind and are currently being
used as a supplement to a Mathematical Modeling course.
This book features a definitive reformulation of algorithmic information
theory with new more constructive definitions of program-size complexity.
It is a revised version of the course notes given to the participant at the
limits of mathematics short course, University of Maine, Orono, Maine, June
1994.
This is the home page of Jim Wilson at the University of Georgia and contains
links to web pages for courses in Mathematics Education. Included are the
results of many student projects.
The UK Mathematics Courseware Consortium is a project in the Teaching and
Learning Technology Programme. It is producing Computer Based Learning modules
in Mathematics, especially for Science and Engineering students.
The Mathwright Library is a collecion of Mathwright Books which have been
produced by the authoring system, Mathwright. This WEBsite makes available
for downloading a Mathwright Library Player which may be used as a viewer
for the WorkBooks in this Mathwright Library. However, it is capable of reading
only the WorkBooks supplied through this WEBsite. There is a commercial version
of Mathwright Library Player which has many additional features. Among the
many topics covered in this library are Area Between the Graphs, Bernoulli
Trials, Chaotic Pendulum, Curves in Art and Nature, Difference Equations,
Dynamical Systems, Eigenvector, Factoring Polynomials, Golden Ratio, Lunar
Lander, Matrix Calculator, Periodic Functions, Pool Game, Polar Graphs, Space
Filling Curve, and Work Problems.
Site established by Mathworks, publisher of MATLAB, which contains links
to colleges, universities and high schools which have course materials using
MATLAB.
In this manual, M. Manzini gives a short presentation of some numerical
methods for the solution of 1D compressible fluid flow problems. This is a
title in the CRS4
Active-Books Library.
Taught by Frederick J. Wicklin and Davide P. Cervone at the University of
Minnesota. This course was an experimental course that emphasized the geometric
aspects of calculus, and included a strong computer-based laboratory component.
At the end of the course, students generated their own hypertext documents
and labs, of which several are presented here.
This page is based on the material which appears in the Solving the Quintic with Mathematica poster,
and allows you to solve fifth-degree polynomial equations using several programs written in Mathematica by Michael Trott and Victor
Adamchik. The notebooks containing the programs are available on MathSource.
The STEPS project brings together nine departments in seven universities
throughout the UK to develop problem based teaching and learning materials
for statistics. The materials being produced are based around specific problems
arising in Biology, Business, Geography and Psychology. It is intended that
students will discover that statistical issues arise from these problems as
important natural parts of the process of reaching conclusions. The role of
the computer is to assist in the exploration of the problem and to provide
support materials for the statistical ideas encountered. Graphical illustration
plays a major role. A glossary of statistical terms is provided, and, where
appropriate, problem modules can be operated in parallel with standard packages.
