TITLE:           College Geometry as an Online Course

 

Abstract:

 

The first fully online mathematics course designed by a faculty member at Ferris was developed and offered during the summer and fall of 2005. This talk will serve partially as a report on that experience and will address all the aspects of teaching a mathematics course online.  In addition, we will also look at the geometry software used in the development of the course, as this software may also become an integral part of the geometry course for elementary education majors that is currently under development by the department.

REFRESHMENTS:  11:00 AM, STARR 138
