Computer Lab Sessions for Undergraduate Math Courses: Is It a Waste of Time?
National University of Singapore
For many years, the author's residing university has
implemented computer lab sessions for lower level math courses. While
a handful of the colleagues are supportive of using IT in teaching, many
are sceptical about the effectiveness of the lab sessions. Students feedback
on lab sessions has also been collected. Around half of the students find
the lab sessions help them in understanding mathematical concepts better,
the other half feel that the sessions are useless.
