Note - This second series focusses on Pedgagoy and Mathematica.

This set of four lessons are designed to demonstrate how CAS (Mathematica) can be used to introduce and explore complex mathematical ideas. Activities will be designed in such a way that will encourage student-centred learning. Sample activities and corresponding Mathematica files will be demonstrated. Participants will write and share their own resources as part the course.

Please note that we highly recommend new users to WebEx join Session 1 at 3:00pm to allow for technical difficulties that one might experience with connecting to WebEx.

We highly recommend participants have a two-screen setup. e.g. One Laptop connected to a projector projecting the virtual conference environment, another Laptop with Mathematica open.
