Attending the Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Antonio, TX, this year? Join us for this MAA Special Session!
Teaching Calculus with a Tablet
Gwyneth Whieldon, Hood College
Integrating technology into the classroom has been a hot topic over the past decade but best practices in the use of tablets, phones, and laptops for mathematics education are still being developed. In this workshop, participants will have a chance to demo the MAA electronic textbook Calculus: Modeling and Application and see how a textbook designed specifically to be read and interacted with on a tablet can be integrated into their own classrooms. We will introduce several apps to supplement an electronic textbook (and, more generally, for use in a technology-based calculus course) and suggest techniques for introducing students to a calculus sequence very different from any math classes they have taken before.
