Abstract

The fundamental aims of this project are
• to improve and enhance student learning in the important first year module Mathematics Core
• to improve student support and to implement better monitoring in the crucial transitional phase of undergraduate study in mathematics.
To achieve these aims, we will introduce in a phased and planned fashion the integrated use of web-based, computer algebra assisted learning and assessment tools into the revised first year provision in mathematics. AIM, a Maple based software package, freely available and increasingly taken up by academics world wide, will provide the vehicle for the test delivery. The impact of students learning and the student's opinions will be studied using various feedback mechanisms.
