MAA CP
I1 Enlivening Multivariate Calculus
Saturday, August 3, 2002, 3:15 pm -
5:15 pm Sarah L. Mabrouk, Framingham State
University, Organizer |
This
session invites papers about the use of applications, unique proofs,
projects/assignments, or demonstrations that enliven a Multivariate Calculus
course, helping students to explore concepts, to understand the meaning of the
mathematics that they study, and to develop an appreciation for
Mathematics. Each presenter is
encouraged to discuss how the use of the application, unique proof,
project/assignment, or classroom demonstration fits into and enlivens the
course, how its use helped/motivated students to learn course material, to
explore course concepts, and/or to develop a greater appreciation of
Mathematics. Of particular interest are
projects/assignments that continue in-class analysis, applications,
demonstrations, or proofs, student reaction, and the instructor’s impressions
of how the use of such applications, proofs, demonstrations, and/or
assignments/projects helped the students to gain a deeper understanding of
Multivariate Calculus.
