WEPS for Research
Since the very beginning, and even before, WEPS has been using online technologies to promote a better way of learning and teaching in the STEM areas. In order to do it, we have been studying how to best employ computational tools and experimented with many of them to find what fitted the students best. The methodologies used by WEPS instructors and facilitators are the results of several years of practice and studies in mathematical education.
To know more, you may read the publications of some of the people involved in WEPS, and here's a few suggestions to start with:
