# ONLINE MATHEMATICS EDUCATION - E-Math for First Year Engineering Students

### Steen Markvorsen, Karsten Schmidt

#### Abstract

We consider the technology enhanced learning of first year engineering mathematics and in particular the application of E-learning objects and principles in the course Mathematics 1 which has a yearly intake of 750 students at the technical University of Denmark. We show that with non-linear multimedia technology and e-learning principles it is possible to strengthen and enhance the studentsâ€™ desire and ability to prepare for the teaching and to read and enjoy the textual representations of the course materials.
