This is a compilation of material I have been using with my students.
It has been translated so that it can be used at a wider international
scale and with your education group in particular. The final content of
the material will cover most of the undergraduate curriculum in mathematics
for all disciplines where mathematics is used, but it does not claim completeness
yet. Individual teachers may add their own modules following the existing
The material is organized in loose modules in such a way that the interdependence
relation can be modified later. The modules are grouped under 6 headings
below, but this does not mean they should be treated in this order.
This material is offered to the students including its programming so
that they can make modifications to each module, adding new examples or
trying new experiments. For teachers it would be also possible to modify
according to the needs of their students, or translate it into Webmathematica
demo's or into Java interactive documents with the programming executed
in the background. Teachers can also add different sets of questions and
objectives to it.
For the purpose of readability, texts blocks have been limited to a few
lines in each document. Where necessary, teachers can add their own comments.
I hope you will have the kindness to mention my name as a reference when
you spread this material further. I would like to receive any comments
from you and feedback about use and student reactions. In future elaboration
of subsequent material your priorities will be taken into account as much
Below are some comments on individual modules.
It is recommended to start a new session of the
Mathematica Kernel before each module.
