This application can be used by student who learns calculus and educator
who teaches calculus course. e-Integral Map emphasizes on the simplicity
and effectiveness of the integral solving process as prescribed in the maps.
With the implementation of blended hierarchical and layered methods, e-
Integral Map instills confidence in dealing with complexity by starting with
simplicity. Visual effects are also utilized in e-Integral Map to enhance
learning and understanding. Besides providing a rich learning experience
and reinforcement, e-Integral Map also caters to different ability level of
users. It consists of 1 bridging map and 7 techniques maps which are linked
meaningfully. The bridging map presents a big picture of the content to be
learned. This helps to convey a â€œbig ideaâ€ effect to users in a meaningful
way. The technique maps are developed in 2 layers, namely the outer layer
(main concepts) and the inner layer (sub-concepts). Colour is used to guide
the user relationally. This application has high commercial value as it can be
used effectively, anywhere and anytime as long as users can go online.
