AMSER (the Applied Math and Science Education Repository) provides educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges but free for anyone to use.en-usealmasy@scout.wisc.eduealmasy@scout.wisc.eduSun, 20 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0500Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0500http://www.rssboard.org/rss-2-0-1Introduction to Numerical Analysis
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16332
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16332This course, presented by MIT and taught by Professor Alar Toomre, provides an introduction to numerical analysis. The material looks at the basic techniques for the efficient numerical solution of problems in science and engineering. Topics include root finding, interpolation, approximation of functions, integration, differential equations and direct and iterative methods in liner algebra. Lecture notes are included on the site. MIT presents OpenCourseWare as free educational material online. No registration or enrollment is required to use the materials.Wed, 12 Jan 2011 03:00:02 -0600Numeric Computation of Integrals
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13773
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13773Created by John Michel for the Connected Curriculum Project, this is a module to calculate numerical approximations to definite integrals by summing the areas of rectangles or trapezoids, to understand how these approximations improve as the number of areas is increased, and to deduce Simpson's Rule. This is one lesson within a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.Tue, 22 Jun 2010 03:00:01 -0500Double Integrals II
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13733
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13733Created by Lang Moore and David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purpose of this module is to use iterated double integrals in polar coordinates to carry out complicated volume computations. This is one within a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.Mon, 24 May 2010 03:00:01 -0500Double Integrals I
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13722
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13722Created by Lang Moore and David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purpose of this module is to investigate the definition of the double integral and to develop numerical methods for calculating double integrals. This is one within a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.Fri, 21 May 2010 03:00:02 -0500The Mathematics of Change
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5726
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5726Activities presented at a 1993 conference focused on change and reform, with notes on the type of technology represented and the level for which each is intended.Thu, 31 Jan 2008 03:00:01 -0600Calculus Course Materials
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5466
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5466An online course: learning units presented in worksheet format review the most important results, techniques and formulas in college and pre-college calculus. Logarithms and Exponential; Sequences; Series; Techniques of Integration; Local Behavior of Functions; Power Series; Fourier Series; and an Appendix of Mathematical Tables.Wed, 12 Dec 2007 03:00:01 -0600Maths Online Gallery
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4973
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4973Provided by the University of Vienna’s futureMedia initiative, the Maths Online Gallery consists of a large collection of extremely useful interactive learning units that demonstrate mathematical concepts. A large number of interactive modules exist in such areas as analytic geometry, trigonometric functions, probability and statistics, integration, Fourier series, as well as model-building and simulation. The gallery was started in 1998 and new learning units are being continually added. This is an especially good resource for college and university teachers looking for in-class interactive illustrations of a large array of basic and advanced mathematical concepts.Wed, 14 Nov 2007 03:00:01 -0600ME:TAL - Mathematics for Economics: Enhancing Teaching and Learning
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4980
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4980Working at the University of Nottingham, Dr. Rebecca Taylor and her colleagues have created this very fine set of resources designed to assist teachers who seek to utilize mathematics in the service of teaching economics. Visitors can learn more about their work in the "About the Team" section, and they can also view a summary of the project's work so far. The real heart of the site is contained within the "Resource Room," which contains streaming videos, teaching and learning guides, and a question bank. Visitors may wish to start with the question bank, which contains files that can be used in problem sheets, assessment exercises, and tutorials. The exercises include those drawing on algebra, number theory, and differentiation. The site also includes teaching and learning guides that address linear equations, finance growth, and either other math and economics topics.Wed, 24 Oct 2007 03:00:12 -0500Homepage of e-Calculus
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=3336
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=3336A mathematics professor from the University of Akron has made available this online tutorial covering many of the topics of a typical first semester of calculus. Beginning with a general overview of continuous functions and fundamental operations, the tutorial progresses to limits, differentiation, and integration. Since the material is so extensive, it is divided into several documents that can be easily navigated using the hyperlinks scattered throughout the text. One shortcoming of the tutorial is its lack of illustrative figures and diagrams; however, equations are clearly shown with adequate explanation. Also provided via a link on the site is the Algebra Review in Ten Lessons.Wed, 16 May 2007 03:00:01 -0500
