Teaching & Learning Seminar - Nicholas Jackson (Warwick, Departments of Maths and Economics)
Teaching mathematics with GeoGebra
There are lots of important concepts in mathematics and economics that students often struggle to understand and internalise, especially when (as is typically and necessarily the case) those concepts are presented in terms of formal, abstract definitions. Often, the right picture, together with suitable illustrative examples, can help a lot. Nick will talk about his experiences using an interactive geometry and algebra application called GeoGebra to help first year undergraduate students understand concepts in real analysis and linear algebra.
