USE OF SCILAB IN LINEAR ALGEBRA
Keywords:creative educational process, higher education, mathematics education, linear algebra, Scilab, free and open source software
Our main aim is to reflect on key aspects related to the method, didactics and creative praxis in the teaching of linear algebra in higher education that if implemented, could contribute to a better learning in this area of mathematics so important for future engineers. In this sense, we propose some activities to develop with Scilab. After the implementation of the activities we gather information from students through an inquiry and we think we have achieved the proposed goals.
