This project is devoted to fundamental concepts of scientific computing at the crossover from school
to university. The goal of this project is to develop a book titled 'Introduction to computer-oriented mathematics'
together with an associated web version. The main issues concern - striking examples bridging the gap
between accessibility for first semester students of and the flavour of real-world applications - web-based,
illustrative material, some of these interactive. A companion project not funded by Matheon will provide
a corresponding e-learning unit.
A similar initiative has been taken at TU Berlin, but more into the Computer Science direction. The course at TU replaces the first two semesters in computer science for first year students of mathematics, business mathematics, and industrial mathematics. It is a combination of computer science concepts with rigorous mathematical proofs and an intensive programming course in Java. The course maintains a web based repository of teaching units and accompanying material, see http://www.math.tu-berlin.de/CoMa.
Development of a eLearning unit on Computer-Orientated Mathematics funded
by Center for Digital Systems (CeDis) of FU Berlin.
