Students’ Perceptions on Practical Problem Solving in Mathematics in E-environment

Anda Zeidmane, Vita Duka

Abstract


Study process in mathematics faces two major problems. First, engineers do not apply directly the problem solving skills of higher mathematics. Second, studying higher mathematics, students get an insufficient idea of its usability. The authors of the paper have worked out frameworks for practical problem solving in mathematics on the basis of didactic ontology in the Moodle computerized learning system (CMS. To determine students' perceptions on practical problem solving in mathematics in e-environment, more than 300 students from the specialties of engineering at the LUA participated in the survey. The survey results showed many students lack basic knowledge in mathematics, therefore they consume a lot of time to learn the basics in higher mathematics and to acquire the skills of practical problem solving in mathematics are less important.
