Research Institution

The goal of this project is to develop an demonstrate the feasibility of computer-based, multimedia instruction to facilitate the acquisition of difficult to learn mathematics principles.

The goal will be accomplished through the design and development of a multimedia interface that uses audio prompts, interaction graphics, and text displays to guide learners through problem solving activities. Instruction through problem-centered modeling will be the primary strategy used in the lesson modules. Audio and text will be used to prompt learners through logical thinking, problem analysis, and the entry of critical information. Interactive 3-D graphics will provide the learners with the opportunity to "construct" images of desired product output and see the corresponding mathematics.

The solving of each problem (lesson module) will provide opportunities to learn through 1) problem-centered modeling of correct behavior, 2) creation of a 3-D visual display and the corresponding mathematics, and 3) feedback provided to the learners as they work through each module. The proposed approach will create a product suitable for small group collaborative use, classroom use as an instructor's tool, or individualized instruction.
