Solids by revolution: materialising an idea

International Journal of Knowledge and Learning (IJKL), Vol. 4, No. 2/3, 2008


Abstract: In this paper, we describe an approach for an effective integration of Computer Algebra Systems (CASs) in an analysis course. In our mathematics courses at University of Salerno, we have noted that students often show a lack of conceptual understanding. To improve their ability in making some geometric concepts concrete, we developed a Mathematica package that is able to realise and visualise the result of a plane domain revolution in a three dimensional space. This package, using the symbolic power of the numerical software Mathematica, is able to generate pictures and computations for an assigned case study.
