Why Good Mathematical Tools Make Engineering Education Even Better

Mathematics lies at the heart of all engineering, but it can be both a blessing and a curse when it comes to engineering education. Truly understanding the underlying mathematics can lead to a deeper understanding of fundamental engineering concepts, but the mechanics of the computations can also impede that understanding, as students get lost in the calculations and lose sight of why they are doing them.

Technology can help a lot. In this session, you will discover how a good mathematical tool can:

  • Help students learn important concepts by relieving the burden of tedious, error-prone calculations that can prevent students from focusing on what's most important when learning new material
  • Keep students engaged with motivating examples and realistic applications that would be too difficult or time-consuming to do by hand
  • Encourage experimentation and iterative designs by exploring the effects of changing parameter values and “what if” explorations, where calculations and graphs are done automatically
  • Increase student understanding with illuminating explanations and visualisations that help make mathematical and engineering concepts more tangible

In the process, you will get a close look at two mathematical tools from Maplesoft: Maple, and Maple Flow, a new tool created specifically to make it easy for engineers to brainstorm, develop, and document design calculations.

If you can’t make this day and time, register anyway and you'll be sent a recording as soon as it becomes available.
