A package for the education in mathematics focuses on the study of a quadric is presented. The package is structured in an hypertextual way and use a “visual” (animations and graphs) approach to mathematical concepts which seems the most appropriate from both the pedagocical and experimental point of view. It includes a theoretical part and a guided lab for the practical session. The most meaningful innovation is given by the verification routines, so that the package gives an essentially self-contained, complete environment.

Abstract

A package for the education in mathematics focuses on the study of a quadric is presented. The package is structured in an hypertextual way and use a “visual” (animations and graphs) approach to mathematical concepts which seems the most appropriate from both the pedagocical and experimental point of view. It includes a theoretical part and a guided lab for the practical session. The most meaningful innovation is given by the verification routines, so that the package gives an essentially self-contained, complete environment. The user may solve exercises by hand, check the solutions he/she finds using two verification functions and receive suggestions.
