Special Features

In teaching science, engineering, and mathematics, technology plays a key role through various ways.

The Internet is one of the most exciting techniques of learning which is growing rapidly and offers the potential for creating exciting learning opportunities for engineering students.

However, designing meaningful activities to deepen mathematical knowledge is a complex task, particularly in an online environment. Good design is possible when mathematics, foundations of engineering, and human-computer interaction design experts work together to take into account sound pedagogy and good interface design principles.

This portal utilizes the above capabilities and includes a number of special features designed to make learning easier and to encourage you to explore the subject matter of the portal in more depth.

The main features of the portal include:

• Objectives
• Resources
• Practical Perspectives
• Focus on Math
• Summary
• Review Problems and Questions
• Key Terms
