Take advantage of the power of technology to develop 3D spatial
visualization skills and minimize the learning curve!
This revolutionary multimedia
CD-ROM and its companion workbook are aimed at
helping users develop the skills they need for success in a variety
of technical careers, including: engineering, architecture,
medicine, computer database operation, chemistry, and more.
Nine fun, easy-to-use modules provide first-hand experience in
working with isometric drawings, orthographic projections,
reflections and symmetry, surfaces and solids of revolution, plus
combining solids. Each module consists of a multimedia software
component, as well as a workbook component, enabling users to learn
Whether integrated into courses that require extensive 3D spatial
visualization, or used as a remediation tool to help students who
may be struggling due to poorly developed skills, Introduction to
3D Spatial Visualization will provide every user with a highly
interactive and long-lasting learning experience.
- software and workbook are designed to be complementary, yet
each item may also be used separately, providing maximum
flexibility to the learner
- the attractive, easy-to-use interface appeals to learners with
diverse backgrounds, allowing them to jump right into thoughtfully
designed 3D spatial visualization activities
- stand-alone modules require little or no formal instruction,
making this revolutionary learning tool ideal for use in
self-paced or lab-oriented learning environments
- the Teacher's Resource Guide (available to Instructors)
contains sample syllabi and quizzes, making it easy to use this
state-of-the-art learning tool in engineering graphics, geometry,
or other courses
