Real Remote Mass Spring Laboratory Experiments across Internet–Inherent Part of Integrated E-Learni
The paper presents the application of Integrated e- Learning, presented in general terms at this conference [1], exemplified on one of the most important parts of Physics - the thematic block “Oscillations“. The goal of the course of Physics in the chapter of Oscillations is to show the oscillatory movement as a basis of nearly all natural phenomena. The unifying model for all real world systems then may be the mass-spring system constituting the mechanical oscillator. The three constituting c

Supporting a Learner Community with Software Agents
This paper describes a multi- agent approach that aims at supporting learners involved in a collective activity. We consider pedagogical situations where students have to explicitly define the articulation of their collective work and then achieve the different tasks they have defined. Our objective is to support these students by taking some of these tasks in charge whilst making them work out such organisation features. For this purpose, we propose to consider that the group of students forms

The Development and Use of Representations in Teaching and Learning about Problem Solving: Exploring
Tim Boerst has explored instructional approaches that foster the development of representational skill and routine use of multiple representations in problem solving. In particular he has used the 'Rule of 3' (a structure employed in calculus reform materials that highlights the use of numerical, algebraic, and/or graphic representations in mathematical learning) to see whether an emphasis on multiple representations would deepen mathematical learning opportunities for a wide variety of students

A primer in MathML
This course, as the name suggest, is intended to help authors who want to publish mathematical content on web. The emphasis here is to enable learners to quickly adapt to the extensive mathML markup language and begin writing codes even without a specialized editor, available commercially. The course is presented in the form of a tutorial, which essentially saves on unnecessary details. This tutorial is not intended currently (may be supplemented later with the help coming from others) to be a c

Empirical Research Methods
Regression analysis is an enormously popular and powerful tool, used ubiquitously in the social and behavioral sciences. Most courses on the subject immediately dive into the mathematical aspects of the subject and illustrate the technique on problems that are already highly structured. As a result, most students come away with little idea of the wide range of problems to which regression analysis can be applied and how to represent those problems in a way that cleverly utilizes readily availabl

Logic
Logic and Proofs is an introduction to modern symbolic logic. It provides a rigorous presentation of the syntax and semantics of sentential and predicate logic. However, the distinctive emphasis is on strategic argumentation. Students learn effective strategies for constructing natural deduction proofs. This learning is supported by the Carnegie Proof Lab: it provides a sophisticated interface, in which students can give arguments by strategically guided forward and backward steps.

Chemical Equilibrium in the Gas Phase
This website describes gas phase equilibrium chemistry and provides a tutorial on key concepts like LeChatelier's principal and includes on-line exercises in which the reader can check their understanding. Calculations of equilibrium constants expressed in terms of pressure and concentration are presented. This site will be most useful for high school and introductory university Chemistry courses in which students are developing an understanding of equilibrium chemistry.

Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
Six days a week, a new math problem is posted on this Web site to intrigue and challenge grade school students. Each Daily Brain has a different theme, considering some mathematical perspective of science, history, geography, and more. After solving the problem, or for a little help, students can look at a step-by-step solution that is also posted online. All old Daily Brains are kept in an archive, and as of May 2003, they numbered around 400. The problems are mostly intended for students betwe
