Computers in Education
The use of technology is increasing day-by-day in educational environments and industry. Teaching theoretical concepts with computer programs’ and calculators’ applications help students to understand the use of technology in various areas of engineering calculations. Different technologies can be used for solving different kinds of engineering problems. In this work, technology preferences of engineering undergraduate students who were enrolled at a mid-sized Northeastern U.S. institution for solving three different types of calculus problems are investigated with the emphasis given to understanding technology education of these students’ at their high schools and their university. The qualitative results to be displayed in this research consist of students’ written questionnaire and video recorded interview responses. The quantitative results are the probabilistic results based on the technology preferences of the students. The results presented in this paper help to determine and understand engineering students’ technology choices for solving different calculus problems based on their technology education at their schools. The participants of this IRB approved research completed the third calculus course of a four-course calculus sequence. This article is a continuation of another IRB approved research that was conducted by the researcher at a large Midwest U.S. institution.
