MAA CP I1 Enlivening Multivariate Calculus


Saturday, August 3, 2002, 3:15 pm - 5:15 pm


Sarah L. Mabrouk, Framingham State University, Organizer


This session invites papers about the use of applications, unique proofs, projects/assignments, or demonstrations that enliven a Multivariate Calculus course, helping students to explore concepts, to understand the meaning of the mathematics that they study, and to develop an appreciation for Mathematics.Each presenter is encouraged to discuss how the use of the application, unique proof, project/assignment, or classroom demonstration fits into and enlivens the course, how its use helped/motivated students to learn course material, to explore course concepts, and/or to develop a greater appreciation of Mathematics.Of particular interest are projects/assignments that continue in-class analysis, applications, demonstrations, or proofs, student reaction, and the instructorís impressions of how the use of such applications, proofs, demonstrations, and/or assignments/projects helped the students to gain a deeper understanding of Multivariate Calculus.
