    • 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

    • Beginning of the semester
    • End of the semester
    • But still,a work in progress
      Starting from Scratch I and II

    • In the beginning, there was the course shell.

    • 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

    • We must free ourselves from the shackles
      of content.

    • Give students tools that allow them to create and contribute.
    • If you can get the mathematics to your computer screen,
      you can share it.

    • 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.

    • 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
      _______ .

    • You no longer have to teach how to use the CAS. It’s easy.
