(45c) Software for Review of Mathematical Fundamentals


Gatzke, E. - Presenter, University of South Carolina

Every engineering course requires mastery of a variety of mathematical topics. Devoting significant course time to basic mathematics review is time-consuming. Forcing students that have mastered topics to repeatedly drill is excessive and undesirable. An online solution was developed to mitigate the various issues related to review of mathematical fundamentals. This system allows students to practice online without grade penalty, while providing feedback and instruction on how to master the material. Ideally, this will allow courses to proceed more smoothly as all students will have masters the basic levels of mathematics required for the course.
