13 KTH LTH DTU April 2008 Coverage

14 KTH LTH DTU April 2008 Coverage Via few concepts - linearity, approximation, integration Via computer experiments - visualize, inspect, discover, discuss, understand, explain Synthesis and coherence

15 KTH LTH DTU April 2008 Coverage Via applications - project exercises and thematic exercises Via milestones - transparent architecture - less curriculum volume - rock solid principles - less rote work Synthesis and coherence

23 KTH LTH DTU April 2008 Coda

24 KTH LTH DTU April 2008 Coda Challenges Laptops for every student (realised in principle at DTU pr. E07): Free movability of discussions, ideas, methods, and drive. New exercises, formulations, and solution processes: Transparent architecture, process-oriented learning. Theory, experiments, proofs, applications: Modelling + Solving + Interpretation = Mathematics.
