|Latosha Shepherd (Summer '04) - visiting student from
Dillard University in New Orleans
||Tyler Hartung (Summer '04) - (aka surfer dude) is our business guy
|Darrin Gillis - early undergraduate MVT development team
||Patrick Simek - early undergarduate MVT development team
Darrin and Patrick were part of the first MVT development team and were responsible
for much of the early foundation code. Other early workers included Paula Krage-Sherbinin, Phil Kent, and others.
Korean Exchange Interns
SUN Educational Services
|Paul Nelson - worked as the departments contact and oversaw the MVT-developin
g interns at SUN from 2001-2003.
||Paula Serbinin - worked as the project lead on the CU project with
James Curry and team from May 2001-Aug 2001.
We would like to thank the following faculty
|Adam Norris -
professor in Applied Mathematics at CU.
Along with teaching some of our Calculus
courses he teaches a course in Java programming. He has been an active
participant in helping us develop MVT applets and helping us integrate them
into the classroom.
||Keith julien -
one of the first advocates of computational projects
and visualization in the Applied Math department's curriculum. In
Spring 1998 Professors Julien and Meiss obtained an Engineering
Excellence Fund grant to support the proposal "Computational and
Mathematical Tools for Differential Equations on the World-Wide-Web."
This pilot effort supported graduate and undergraduate students in the
development of java-based tools for use in the Calculus and
Differential equations courses. This resulted in one of
the earliest versions of MVT.
|Ryan Girard - full-time faculty member in the Department of Mathematics
at Front Range Community College. He received his Masters in Applied
Mathematics from CU Boulder in 2003 and has been a math content specialist
for NSF Graduate Teaching Fellows in K-12 Education (GK-12). He has also
worked as Math content developer at Sun Microsystems to incorporate JAVA
technology with MVT to create blocks of instruction.
||Dr. Congming Li - one of the first advocates of computational
projects and visualization in the Applied Math department's curriculum.
He helped introduce computational projects into the Calculus and
Differential equations courses in the form of labs and online assignments.
He played a supportive role and helped obtain grants which were used to
develop curriculum for the Calculous courses. His role in integrating
technology into the classroom lead to the conception of softwares like
MVT in the department.
