Hello Math Department!


The Online Math Lab (math.ucsb.edu/oml) is a website that provides links
to internet resources for students enrolled in our lower division math
classes.  We are giving this talk to let faculty and TA's know about the
site and how they can publicize it as a resource for students seeking
extra help.

Links have been pre-screened to match with a specific course's syllabus
and, currently for 34AB, we've also added links to relevant sections of
the site on the student's Webwork problems.

We'll demo the site and show how faculty can access the modified 34AB
Webwork problems containing the links.  We're also looking for feedback on
how to improve site.

Moreover, we will be talking about our experience applying for an
instructional improvement grant from Instructional Development.  It can be
a great way for grad students to fulfill a CCUT requirement while also
benefiting the department.
