Didactic Simulator Applied to Solving Problems of Vector Algebra in Two Dimensions


Education today faces challenges that put into question the value of their purpose, content and process, consequences of complexity in the academic process, one of the concrete manifestations of what should be the teacher is teaching acting. The construction of learning products which developed under different factors, conditions and educational practices that deal with the daily work of teachers in the laboratory, classroom, workshop. Also acquire or improve skills to understand, innovate and generate knowledge. Therefore the present project is the development of an educational software called " didactic simulator applied to solving problems of vector algebra in two dimensions " , which aims to attack the low performance in the field of General Physics in Career of Computer Systems Engineering , providing a tool that allows them to reinforce the knowledge acquired in class, this software offers a step by step explanation of how it has to solve a problem by the method you selected. With the development of this simulator problems currently existing practice involves the solution of vector algebra in two dimensions, and thus have the ability to solve them are resolved. During the implementation of this project evaluations to a group of test were performed to verify that the developed system could really help the improvement and understanding of the methods of vector algebra in two dimensions, and found that the tool really helps students better understand the topics covered in class.
