Course Information

Dear participants,

Learning Calculus using animation is fun. We provide you with an online learning platform that interacts with you in a real time manner as you press a few buttons, slide the bars and type some mathematical answers. There are 6 units:

  1. Fermat's Principle implies Snell's Law
  2. Mathematics of the Bungee Jumping
  3. Curve Fitting
  4. Differentiation and Newton’s Method: Homemade Calculator
  5. Calculus of Variations: Brachistochrone curve
  6. Approximation Methods and Error Estimates

From easy to moderate to hard problems, these project-based learning units will provide you with hands-on experience to see how different physical problems can be solved by calculus techniques. These cool problems can be viewed as out of class learning activities.

Please visit this site from time to time. You will find the latest developments and applications of Calculus and surprises when you work on these project questions.

After first looking/checking the six projects below, please click the link below and help us by doing the survey:

Questionnaire for Calculus Students

The survey only takes one minute!

Thank you very much!

Yours truly,

The Calculus of Project Teams

親愛的同學,

使用動畫來學習微積分是很有趣的。我們為同學們提供了一個線上學習平台,當我們按下幾個按鈕、滑動一些條塊或輸入一些數字時,這個學習平台會開始與你實時互動。平台裡設置有6個單元:

  1. 從費馬定理到斯涅爾定律
  2. 蹦極數學
  3. 曲線擬合
  4. 微分和牛頓法:自製計算器
  5. 變分法:最速曲線
  6. 近似方法和誤差估算

從簡單到中等到更具挑戰的問題,這些融合在不同小課題中的學習單元將為您同學們提供多樣性的實踐經驗,了解如何使用微積分來解決不同的物理問題。這些很酷的問題可以被視為課外學習的一部分。

本網站會持續更新,你會發現微積分的最新發展和應用。

請首先瀏覽下面的六個專案,然後點擊以下鏈接,幫助我們填寫問卷:
