IMPLEMENTATION OF MICROSOFT MATHEMATICS IN ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS
P. Kanakadurga Devi1, V.G. Naidu2
Microsoft Mathematics is a freely downloadable educational program. In this paper implemented Microsoft Mathematics to develop the problem solving skills in Engineering Mathematics. In this survey two groups of students were participated. Conventional group was learning by using age-old teaching method and Empirical group was learning by using Microsoft Mathematics. Assessment of student’s achievement was collected by conducting test before and after using Microsoft Mathematics. Using Microsoft Mathematics we can solve problems related to Calculus, Statistics, Trigonometry and Linear Algebra. In this investigation Empirical group students’ attitudes and self confidence in solving mathematical and tech related problems comparing with Conventional group is more effective.
