FEATURES OF TEACHING HIGHER MATHEMATICS IN ENGLISH TO STUDENTS OF COMPUTER SPECIALTIES

 

Abstract

One of the promising directions for the development of education in Ukraine is the introduction of English-language professional training in all program disciplines. Studying in English attracts foreign students who do not speak Ukrainian, and opens up great growth opportunities for Ukrainian students. This article is devoted to the study of problems of teaching higher mathematics in English to students who are not native speakers of English.

Due to the spread of teaching in English, in recent years there has been an increasing number of publications on organizational, methodological and psychological aspects of teaching in multinational groups.

The purpose of the article is to investigate the problems and features of teaching mathematical disciplines to students of computer specialties in English, to present our own pedagogical experience and recommendations for improving the quality of cognitive activity.

Teaching mathematics in English requires defining the format of the classes and careful methodological preparation. The paper presents approaches that allow students to master mathematical terminology. The peculiarities of the creating of methodological support that combines the traditions of national and foreign teaching methodology are considered. In the paper, the attention is paid to the features of mathematical training of future specialists in the field of information technology. The possibilities and advantages of using computer mathematics systems in the study of higher mathematics are highlighted. To diagnose the knowledge gained by students, it is suggested to use tests developed using tools of the Moodle learning platform.

We conclude that the implementation of English-language training is effective in the context of the development of professional competencies of future computer science specialists. The approaches presented, according to the authors’ experience, allow to increase the intensity of students’ cognitive activity and to improve the quality of acquired knowledge and skills.

Further research on this problem may be devoted to improving the scientific and methodological support, the search of new learning technologies, developments in the organization of distance learning, etc.

Key words higher education; higher mathematics; teaching in English; multinational groups; computer science students.
