In this webinar, Dr. Lopez will apply the techniques of “Clickable Calculus” to standard calculations in linear algebra. These calculations include Gaussian elimination, projecting a vector onto a one- or two-dimensional subspace, and exploring the relationships between eigenvalues, singular values, and the matrix norm.
Clickable Calculus™, the idea of powerful mathematics delivered using very visual, interactive point-and-click methods, offers educators a new generation of teaching and learning techniques. Clickable Calculus introduces a better way of engaging students so that they fully understand the materials they are being taught. It responds to the most common complaint of faculty who integrate software into the classroom – time is spent teaching the tool, not the concepts.
Dr. Robert J. Lopez, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA, is an award winning educator in mathematics and is the author of several books, including Advanced Engineering Mathematics. For over two decades, Dr. Lopez has also been a visionary figure in the introduction of math technology into undergraduate education and has received numerous awards for outstanding scholarship and teaching.
