"Our C3 labs represent an excellent opportunity to visuzalize difficult math issues in a very vivid way, thereby promoting students' visualization abilities.“
...is a professor at the university for technology (HFT) in Stuttgart and head of their Cyber-Classroom C3-Labs. Dr. Schneider was the first professor for math in Germany who integrated the Cyber-Classroom's Academic Edition into his lectures and student projects.
Complex geometry issues are visualised in 3D in his VR-lab, thereby aiming to promote students' 3D visual thinking.
Geometric forms of math formulas can be experienced interactively thanks to this system. This facilitates an intuitive and creative understanding of difficult geometry matters.
"Students are supposed to use their brains first to figure out a formula“, he says. Then they will be rewarded with the Cyber-Classroom's virtual reality. (Source: FAZ report from the 30th of April 2011 by Christine Pander)
Tradition und Innovation are the twin pillars characterising the University for Technology in Stuttgart. A broad variety of accredited Bachelor and Master's degrees are available, for the summer term and winter term as well.
"We still work with boards when studying theoretic principles. Afterwards however, we use the Cyber-Classroom to visualize a given formula as a three-dimensional model."
Prof. Dr. Franz-Josef Schneider, University for Technology Stuttgart
