Come and hear our resident maths and simulation software expert, Surak Perera, give a presentation about teaching concepts with Maple this Thursday at the CETL-MSOR Conference 2012 – which stands for (are you ready, it’s a long one) Continuing Excellence in the Teaching & Learning of Mathematics, Statistics, & Operational Research (phew!) The Conference takes place at the University of Sheffield and aims to explore and disseminate emerging good practice and research findings in Mathematics and Statistics support, teaching, learning and assessment.
Surak’s presentation looks at how computational maths tools like Maple can help to teach, motivate and equip students in STEM subjects with the kind of analytical problem-solving skills that are becoming so important for successful future careers in research, science, and engineering applications in academia and industry. Maple also gives students who struggle with analytical theory the means to investigate concepts interactively and repeat analytical procedures irrespective of ability. This encourages them to progress independently and helps to build confidence.
Join us and discover how Maple can help teachers create an inclusive learning environment that accommodates the needs of students with varying skills and abilities.
