This document provides detailed lab guidelines (for vb.net language) of an introductory (first year) programming-based mathematics course at Brock University.
Implementation of undergraduate programming-based mathematics
‘Computational Thinking’ is becoming increasingly included in schools around the world. For example, England, France, New-Zealand, and Australia have integrated it in their mandatory school education. But what is happening in our undergraduate mathematics programs? Should mathematics departments also adapt to this change? If so, how?
This short video (3 min) provides an overview of a sequence of first, second, and third-year courses at Brock University.
This article (written for school mathematics teachers) describes the implemented view at Brock University of using programming in university mathematics education to ‘mimic’, in a smaller scale, the engagement of a research mathematician.
This article provides a short description of all implementation aspects of undergraduate programming-based mathematics courses at Brock University.
This article (published in Mathematics Today) reflects on the learning experiences of Brock University mathematics undergraduates in designing, programming, and using interactive environments for mathematics investigations.
This very brief article describes an holistic approach, at the time, of technology integration in the undergraduate mathematics program, called Mathematics Integrated with Computers and Applications (MICA), at Brock University.
Integration of mathematics education research in our teaching of undergraduate mathematics
This remains a widespread debate among the mathematics education community; it stems from a perceived gap between research in mathematics education and its potential to change teaching practices.
