On the use of computer algebra systems in a calculus course for Thai engineering students - developing and testing modules for visualization -

By U. Chundang

Abstract

The idea is investigated to use computers as a tool in a course at the King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Thonburi (Bangkok), especially to develop new methods of teaching by using dynamical visualizations. In the introduction some aspects of engineering education in Thailand are given. The first chapters are descriptions of the state of the art of teaching mathematics as a service subject and of the use of the new technology. The main chapters contain didactical analyses of the main topics and the descriptions of the modules which were developed as well as the methodology used and results of the pilot studiesDie vorliegende Arbeit beschaeftigt sich mit der Entwicklung eines Kurses ''Mathematik fuer Ingenieure'' fuer thailaendische Hochschulen, wobei insbesondere der Einsatz von Computer-Algebra-Systemen im Vordergrund steht. Es wird ueber die Entwicklung von ''Modulen'', die hauptsaechlich der Visualisierung dienen sollen, sowie ueber Versuche mit diesen Modulen berichtetSIGLEAvailable from FIZ Karlsruhe / FIZ - Fachinformationszzentrum Karlsruhe / TIB - Technische InformationsbibliothekDEGerman
