  • where I began
  • computer-based learning
    (in 1984)
  • we’ve learned many other
    technologies along the way
  • MathCad and ChemCad
  • in grad school, I learned to
    teach with TI calculators
  • fast forward to today
  • today
  • Buckle up, this will be fast!

  • Technology-rich courses that engage students start like this ...
  • and then we build a shell
  • teaching calculus online
  • even though the courses are different, the foundation is similar
  • during the semester, I add learning objects as I find them or create them
  • http://thisisindexed.com
  • Beginning of the semester
  • End of the semester
  • But still,a work in progress
    Starting from Scratch I and II
    http://teachingcollegemath.com/?page_id=1107
  • In the beginning, there was the course shell.
    LMS
  • now we need to free up some time
  • Algorithmically-generated problems
  • Instant Feedback
  • Quest for Points
  • Video Game Culture
    = ?
  • online homework motivates students to engage in learning the content outside of class, and essentially sets the course schedule
  • now for the confession
  • we no longergo over homeworkin class
  • travelers
  • Math ELITEs
    http://teachingcollegemath.com/?p=2148 .
  • We must free ourselves from the shackles
    of content.

  • Give students a place to collaborate, discuss, and ask questions
  • Math students will participate
    in a “social” environment.

  • Give students tools that allow them to create and contribute.
  • If you can get the mathematics to your computer screen,
    you can share it.
  • digital cameras
    iPods
    copiers
    digital pens
    cell phones
    scanners

  • let’s take a look
  • The images that follow all have one thing in common … they were submitted digitally as part of an assignment in Calculus II.
  • The images that follow all have one thing in common … they were submitted digitally as part of an assignment in Calculus II.
  • Students use scanners, digital pens, software, digital cameras, whiteboards, and cell phones to capture the images.
  • Many of the students use Jing to capture just a small portion of the image to insert into their assignment.
  • Students
    (or you)
    can also
    record and share
    short videos
    of up to 5 minutes.

  • Now let’s talk CAS.
  • There are plentyof free options.

    http://www.sagemath.org/
    http://maxima.sourceforge.net/
  • But we need to talk about this one.
    http://www.wolframalpha.com
  • Did I mention this is free?
  • and on every computer
    that has Internet access?
  • and on every phone
    with internet access?
  • to share,
    just copy the URL
  • share in chats
  • share as a hyperlink
  • share the old-fashioned way
  • anyone excited?
  • how about
    nervous?
  • Inquiry-based
    Learning
  • Developing intuition about integration techniques
  • You might write statements something like...
    “When the integrals look
    like ______ the solutions
    seem to be similar in that
    _______ .
