Teaching Computational Methods for Partial Differential Equations Using the Web
May/June 2001 (vol. 3 no. 3)
pp. 83-85
Computational methods are part of the problem-solving skills that professionals working in quantitative fields need. Advanced-level textbooks provide the mathematical foundation for one specific approach; however, they miss the overview and examples that are generally necessary to choose the right method and implement a practical solution. Internet technology can be of great value in this context. Thus, we created a problem-based learning environment where knowledge is acquired by performing well-defined tasks. We also switched from a teaching-centered course to a learning-centered course-the students choose their own focus, order and pace as they explore the material (see http://pde.fusion.kth.se).
