  • Pedagogy and Professional Development — Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
    graduate courses in mathematics They include several that are sponsored by national bodies Project NExT Project NExT New Experiences in Teaching is an MAA professional development program directed at new Ph D s It is aimed at young mathematicians in their first years after graduate school as they make the transition from graduate student to regular faculty member balancing the responsibilities of teaching research and service Since its inception in 1994 more than 1000 Ph D mathematicians have been project NExT fellows The program has been so successful that many MAA sections have set up programs modeled on Project NExT The project was co founded by Dr T Christine Stevens Prep Workshops The Mathematical Association of America MAA sponsors a series of Professional Enhancement Programs PREP workshops to support professional growth for mathematicians at all stages of their careers SLU s math department has run a series of online workshops helping faculty across the country incorporate technology into their teaching 2011 Web Enhanced Instruction with GeoGebra 2011 Geometry and Art 2010 Web Enhanced Instruction with GeoGebra 2009 Web Enhanced Instruction with GeoGebra 2008 Geometry and Art 2007 Exploring Multivariable Calculus with Maple 2006 Exploring Multivariable Calculus with Maple 2006 Incorporating the Software GAP into Teaching Abstract Algebra 2005 Exploring Linear Algebra with Maple 2004 Exploring Abstract Algebra using Computer Software 2003 Abstract Algebra with GAP Computer classroom grant The department received an ILI grant for constructing a computer classroom We have used it as a platform for a substantial amount of pedagogical course development developing course materials for eight courses during the period of the grant More development has been done since then Gap manual Dr Julianne Rainbolt produced a Lab Manual for Abstract Algebra with GAP as part of an NSF funded project Document Actions Send this Print this

  • Curricular Development — Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
    Processing Units GPUs In order to provide support for quick real time graphics GPUs are hardware that are highly parallel in nature Recently there has been a push to repurpose the parallelism of GPUs to provide high performance computing HPC to solve a broader set of problems with applications in math science and engineering With this recognition NVIDIA has donated 16 new GPUs for our Computer Science lab including one high end processor for our central server This hardware will be used to support a new course in High Performance Computing CSCI 493 to be taught for the first time in Spring 2012 by Dr David Letscher Maple Worksheets and Java Applets Developed and maintained primarily by Fr Mike May Please contact Fr May maymk slu edu if you have questions or find this material useful Courses Below Calculus A collection of Applets for Courses below Calculus including college algebra triangles in geometry vectors trigonometry pre calculus advanced graphing and more Calculus A collection of Applets for Calculus includes applets developed locally as well as applets developed elsewhere There is also Occasional Maple for Calc II is a series of worksheets using Maple in teaching calculus II The worksheets are designed assuming that Maple is only used occasionally in the course so it has to be made friendlier to use We are currently teaching multivariate calculus in a computer classroom We have created a collection of Java Applets and Maple worksheets for Calculus III The worksheets have also been used in an MAA PREP workshop Exploring Mulrivariable Calculus with Maple Algebra A series of Maple Worksheets for Linear Algebra Some of the worksheet development was part of an NSF ILI grant The worksheets have also been used in an MAA PREP workshop Exploring Linear Algebra with Maple The Abstract Algebra
