ab: Summary: The purpose of this article is to investigate studentsâ€™
performance of using multimedia technology within mathematical
differentiation and limit fields. Two groups of undergraduates
participated in the process of this study and evaluation. The
experimental group wa taught with the abundant multimedia supplementary
materials, including conceptual computer Flash animations, Mathematica
static figures, power point bulletin and e-plus software computer-based
instructions. The control group was taught as usual, using a regular
mathematical textbook. After eight weeks of learning, and the
statistical procedures of the analysis covariance, it was found that
the students of experimental group outperformed their counterparts in
their mathematical learning efficiency; they would get the $12.0\%$ and
$11.6\%$ raises in differentiation and limit respectively. The Cronbach
alpha for the entire learning attitude questionnaire was $0.94$. There
were significant differences $(p<0.05)$ of the learning attitude
questionnaire with studentsâ€™ different fondness degree of multimedia
technology.
