Whiteboard, Book and Web – an Alternative Approach for Teaching Mathematics and Modelling and Simulation

Session

Education and Development

Description

This contribution presents plans for development of the blended-learning environment for engineering mathematics education at universities. TU Wien – Technical University Vienna - has introduced courses on mathematics based on two main concepts, theoretical understanding and practical application – lecturing and exercising supported by a web-based e-learning environment, and practicing and testing in this environment (Maple TA with symbolic math kernel).

‘Moebius ‘ - an extension of Maple TA environment, the offers an integration of lecturing into the system. The challenging future is an electronic math text book with two main options. One is guided learning: the lecturer moderates the textbook in ‘open’ lectures with integrated electronic exercises – commenting the textbook eventually with whiteboard annotations (which are integrated in the electronic textbook. And the other option is self-reliant e-learning: the electronic textbook guides the students through the content, and step by step with feedback loops, the mathematical knowledge is placed and trained.

The MMS group at TU Wien has experiences with the first option in using a web-based math training environment (MMT server) – which is basis for the plans in the Moebius environment. The present system and the planned future implementation work also for courses in modelling and simulation for engineering and business informatics.
