Interactive Applets in Calculus and Engineering Courses
This chapter reports on the use of specialized computer applets (“Mathlets”) in two different contexts: on-line instruction in calculus through MIT OpenCourseWare and on-campus laboratory exercises on stability of difference schemes in class. Specific applets are described. Three use cases with varying levels of sophistication (elementary, intermediate, and advanced) are outlined.
